Export Tasks

You can use export tasks to:

· Export data for use in external applications such as spreadsheets, word processors (mail merge), and so on.

For example, the Travel Agency might wish to export details of Scheduled Tours for which no reservations have been made, so that this information can be used by management in an external application.

· Export data for use in other USoft applications.

For example, suppose that there are other branches of the Travel Agency using the same application, but on their own local data, and that the main office has a USoft application for consolidating information for statistical purposes. In this case, each branch could export the data required for use by the main office.

· Create backup data files.

For example, it is quite likely that the Travel Agency will want to make regular backups of its data, for use in disaster recovery situations. This could easily be done using an export task.
