Export Reference Data
When you have a complete project set up, with fully defined project data, it is possible to capture either selected categories or all categories of that data, and export it to a single XML file. You can then review the data, and import it to another project or tool so that you do not have to define it all again. The exported data includes all instances of the selected data type in the project; for example, all defined cardinality values, or all Document Style Templates.
Access Project | Data Management | Export Reference Data
Select and Export Reference Data
On the Export Reference Data dialog, click on the '+' box against each table group you want to expand.
Select the checkbox against each table or table group to export.
If you select the top-level, group-name checkbox, all tables in that group are selected for export.

Type Default (the defined default value for each General Types data type; for example, as set on the Difficulty tab)
Maintenance Types (Problem Types plus Test Types)
Stereotypes (as listed on the Stereotypes page of the UML Types dialog)
Standard Complexity Types (a Predefined Reference Data Tagged Value Type)
Diagram Matrix Profiles (Model Profiles)
Linked Document Templates (each of the Linked Document templates in the Resources window)
RTF Document Templates (each of the Document Report Style templates in the Resources window)
Templates - RTF Project Constants
Templates - RTF Style (the Legacy RTF Style templates in the Resources window)

Click on the Export button.
When prompted to do so, enter a valid file name with a .XML extension.
Click on the Save and OK buttons.
This exports the data to the file; you can use any text or XML viewer to examine the file.
|You can resize the Export Reference Data dialog; drag the dialog edges to the size you need
|If there are no instances of a selected data type in the project, the export does not generate any output for that data type in the XML file
|Currently, Standard Complexity Types cannot be directly edited and are therefore effectively standard for all models; they can be listed using the Predefined Reference Data Tagged Value type ComplexityTypes
