The import and export dialog boxes allow you to save and load your settings to and from disk. The file that contains these settings is called Import/Export project. It stores the file name and its access path, tables and fields selected and the name of the form, and whether the export uses a form and other Import and Export options (file type, delimiters, etc.).

Note: On Windows, the project file is saved with the extension .4SI.

To save the import or export settings, click the Save Setting button (left button) in the Command area.



To load the Import or Export project manually, click the Load Setting button (right button) in the Command area.

To load the Import or Export project procedurally, you must load the project file into a blob and pass it into the command EXPORT DATA or IMPORT DATA.

For example:

C_BLOB($bProject)
DOCUMENT TO BLOB("ProjectFile";$bProject) `Load Import/Export Setting
IMPORT DATA("FileName";$bProject)
