When a user wants to export one or more data tables from Ple4Win into a single Excel file, an interactive 'wizard' kind of functionality will guide the user through each step of the process. Each data table exported from Ple4Win can be found as a table in an individual worksheet in the Excel file. The order of the worksheets can be given during the export process.
There are 2 ways to activate this functionality:
➢ Select from menu File > Export > Tables to Excel file...
➢ Click on (the arrow next to) the 'Multi Table' button and select 'Export to Excel File...'
'Multi Table: Export' screen will be shown. This functionality consists of 3 steps. However, it is not necessary to go through all the steps. The first step is sufficient to export multiple tables to an Excel file. Default settings will be used for the remaining 2 steps.
A general working procedure about the tab Selection can be found in section Multi Table Selection.
In the Export mode, all available tables can be selected to be exported. Output/Result tables are available only if the concerning design function has been successfully processed. If empty tables are hidden (checkbox 'Show Empty tables' is unchecked), design functions containing only empty tables are disabled (grey).
Legend of the used icons in the Export mode is shown below.
Click Next to specify the export options or click on the Export button to export the selected table(s) immediately.
