Exporting Files from Personal Knowbase

Just as you can import information from many external file types into Personal Knowbase, you can also export information out of PK to a number of different file formats. For example, you may need your information in a different format to send it to someone else, to move it to a different software program, or to publish it to the web.

Types of Exportable Files

You can export to many file types, including flat (ASCII) text files, Rich Text Format (RTF) files, HTML (web) files, Windows Cardfile (CRD) files, and comma-separated delimited (CSV) files.

Export Dialog Box

You can also export to a new Knowbase file, which provides a handy way to split a data file into multiple files.

Personal Knowbase can write several reports for reviewing your information, which can also be exported into flat text, RTF, or HTML files.

Refining What Is Exported

When you export articles from Personal Knowbase, you can choose to export all articles in your database, or a subset of articles based on bookmarked, highlighted, or selected articles. You can “select” a subset of articles based on any combination of keywords or a text search.

You can also select what parts of each article to include in the exported file. You can include only the articles’ text content, or the title, date, attachment list, or keywords.

Export Setup Dialog Box

Another option is whether to export your selection of articles all to one external file or to export each article to a separate file.

More Information
