You described the right procedure, it'll export all (or just selected, you have that option) documents in a currently opened view.
Save the file as txt, not TTF (which is True Type Font extension, so it would've probably be opened as binary, not txt...).

If you want all documents in a db, then create view with selection formula
SELECT @All

Note that only the columns shown in a view will be exported, not the whole document, so add all the columns that you want exported...

What the output file will be used for, you probably have better options than txt file (XML, JDBC, ODBC,...)

Text option will Only export the text in a specific view. no attachments, pictures or anything else, so you are limited.

Please give details of what you are trying to achieve.

I hope this helps !

Hi guys
we hae an old database that recently the users are complaining that same records "disapear".
I could not find any problem.
so the user export it and keep it only for a reference to try to find when somethng happen again. Since I know it's a user problem, I do want to give something to them to do by themselves.
so she can check by herself when she thinks the "system deleted" something.
thank you

Then create db replica that you're going to replicate manually (just as you would do export from a view).

When users complain, you simply send them a db link.

Preferably create replica on different server.
If you create them on the same server disable replication of your new replica (to avoid replication when someone replicates manually).

If you can determine schedule, you can even create connection document (in names.nsf), in which you'll specify your schedule and exact databases to replicate.
