Export Reference Data
When reference and project data is exported, Enterprise Architect writes it out to a custom XML file. This includes table information, filter information, rows and columns.
To export data, follow the steps below:
- Select the Tools | Export Reference Data menu option. The Data Exporter dialog displays.
- From the Name list, select the table to export. You can select one or more tables for a single file.
- Click on the Export button.
- When prompted to do so, enter a valid file name with a .XML extension.
This exports the data to the file. You can use any text or XML viewer to examine this file.
The data exported includes all instances of the data type in the project; for example, all defined cardinality values, or all RTF Style Templates.
If there are no instances of a selected data type in the project, the export does not generate any output for that data type in the XML file.
For information on each category of data you can export, refer to the following topics:
- ActionScript Code Templates; entries for code templates are listed only if templates for a particular language exist in the model. The list entry has the format <language_name>_Code_Templates.
- Cardinality Types
- Constraint Status Types
- CSV Specifications
- Defined Metric Types
- Defined Problem Types
- Diagram Matrix Profiles (Model Profiles)
- Estimation - Environment Complexity Factor Values
- Estimation - Technical Complexity Factor Values

- Import Component Types
- Linked Document Templates
- Macro List (Preprocessor macros)
- Maintenance Types (both Problem Types and Test Types)
- Model Authors
- Model Data Types - Code and DDL

- Standard Complexity Types - currently, these cannot be directly edited and are therefore effectively standard for all models; they can be listed using the Predefined Reference Data Tagged Value type ComplexityTypes.
- Status Colors (the colors defined for status types)
- Status Types
- Status - Applies To (elements to which the status can be applied)
- Stereotypes (all those listed on the Stereotypes page of the UML Types dialog)

- Templates - RTF Document (exports the Extended RTF Style templates in the Templates folder of the Resources window)
- Templates - RTF Style (exports the Legacy RTF Style templates in the Templates folder of the Resources window)
- Templates - RTF Style Detail (exports the content of the RTF templates)
