Exporting and Importing Rendition Profiles and Rendition Profile Components
You can export rendition profiles and rendition profile components from one datasource and import them into another datasource. To do this, you can either use ProjectWise Administrator, or you can use the ProjectWise Datasource Export and Import Wizards (PWEXPT.EXE, PWIMPT.EXE).
You can choose to export or import:
- All of the rendition profiles and rendition profile components
- All of the rendition profiles and just the rendition profile components included in those rendition profiles
- Just (all of) the rendition profile components
- Just (all of) the rendition profile components of a particular category
Whichever method you use to export, the export process creates a script file with the extension .AAM in the export folder you specify during export. It contains records of all the rendition profiles and rendition profile components exported, as well as properties and attributes of the exported items. The script file is then used to recreate the rendition profiles and rendition profile components when you import the data into another datasource.
See the "Exporting Datasource Data" and "Importing Exported Datasource Data" sections in the ProjectWise Explorer help for details about using the ProjectWise Datasource Export and Import Wizards.
The rest of this section discusses how to export and import rendition profiles and components using ProjectWise Administrator.
