Exporting Variables Simplified, No Macro Required :)

    Recently i came across a post written by @Kamal Kumar Sanguri that grab my attention, so i thought of posting this document. Thanks Kamal.

     

    We can export variables and expressions to a file in multiple ways, here i'm discussing 1 way

     

     

    There is a hidden feature in Expression over view Window(Ctrl+Alt+E) which can list variables and expressions that were assigned to the variables. To export the variables and assigned expressions follow the below steps

     

    1.Open expression Overview window

    2.Select "Other Expressions"(Deselect the remaining options)

    3.Click on "Columns.."

    4.Select "Location(Full)"(Deselect the remaining options) then press OK

    5.Click on "Export..." and enter the filename. It will create .tab file.


    Data in the .tab file looks as follow

     

    <Document>.<Variable=vDate>=Today()
    <Document>.<Variable=vTime> =Reloadtime()
    <Document>.<Variable=vDocName>
    =DocumentName()

     

    First Column has Variable names and Second column has expression assigned to the variables.
