Exporting Taxonomic records
   compleat botanica    using the software    sharing    Exporting   


Exporting taxonomic records is useful if you want to make large-scale changes to the family / order / class hierarchy system. If this is what you need to do you can export all or part of the Checklist to an XML file. After exporting you can use a file editor to make global changes to the individual records. Finally, you can use the import command to bring the changed records back into the database.

To begin the Export process for taxonomic records, be sure your current view is the Checklist View.

Before starting, select the highest record in the taxonomic hierarchy that you want to export.


After selecting the highest record, begin the Export process by choosing the Export command from the File menu.


Use the �Select file� window to specify the name of the file to be used for the exported records.

Press the Next button.


Decide whether you want to export a single record or the entire hierarchy of subordinate taxa.

Press the Next button.


Press the Start button to Export the records.
