This option displays a list of customizable shot and station data suitable for export to databases and spreadsheets. The option selectively displays a list of all stations and shots in the cave. You have the ability to control the delimiter and header and this allows you to customize the list so it can be imported by virtually any database. For example, most databases can import “coma delimited” data. Once you have created a list that meets your requirements, you can export it to a file or the clipboard.
Selecting the “Custom Export” page in the left-hand panel allows you to control which items will be exported. Here is a detailed description of each item:
The Slope Length is length of shot as measured up or down the slope of the passage. Plan Length is the length of the shot as viewed from above. For example, if you have a 50-foot vertical shot, the Slope Length will be 50 feet but the plan length will be 0 feet.
7. Delimiter. Many programs use a particular character to separate data items. This is often called a “Delimiter.” The Export feature allows you to select either a Tab or a Coma as the delimiter. Many database can read “Coma-Delimited” text. Spreadsheets like Excel expect to see “Tab-Delimited” text.
8. Digits. This item controls the number of digits past the decimal point for numerical items.
Note: if to produce a list of unique stations in the cave, select the “To” option only and disable the Closure Shot option.
