Export Reference Data

When reference and project data is exported, Enterprise Architect writes it out to a custom XML file. This includes table information, filter information, rows and columns.


To export data, follow the steps below:

  1. Select the Tools | Export Reference Data menu option. The Data Exporter dialog displays.
  2. From the Name list, select the table to export. You can select one or more tables for a single file.
  3. Click on the Export button.
  4. When prompted to do so, enter a valid file name with a .XML extension.

This exports the data to the file. You can use any text or XML viewer to examine this file.

The data exported includes all instances of the data type in the project; for example, all defined cardinality values, or all RTF Style Templates.


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.

For information on each category of data you can export, refer to the following topics:
