Export Link Information

You can export information about links to a text file.

You can use the program to export links contained in a drawing. This is useful when you have multiple graphical objects linked to a single database row. Suppose, for example, that you want to prepare a bill of materials that summarizes the number of different light fixtures in a drawing. The external database that your drawing is linked to does not contain this information. All the database provides is a list of the various light fixtures that make up its record set. The database table has no knowledge of the number of instances of individual light fixtures in your drawing. If you want to prepare a summary report containing this information, you have to export the links in your drawing.
