Print this Topic Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

You can export the structure of a starter view into a diskette (or a folder) and then import the view structure into another copy of RaceMate so as to share your view with another RaceMate user. If you carry out the export and import actions in the same RaceMate, the end result is copying the structure of an existing view to a new view.


Steps to export view structure to a disk

1.On the Race Data form, open the view that you want to export its structure.
2.Click on the [Modify] button at the right hand side of the Race.


3.When the "Edit View" form shows, click on the [Export] button at the right edge of the form.
4.Enter a view name and a description into the Export View form.


5.Insert a floppy diskette into drive A: to start exporting.

2.Put the floppy diskette created from the steps above into drive A:.
3.On the Starter View page of the Race Data form, click on the [New] button at the right hand side of the form.
4.When the "Edit View" form shows, click on the import button at the right hand side of the form. A dialog for selecting source folder will be shown.
