I am trying to find a way to export a document and all its versions. I have tried the usual ways but i only get the newest version. Does anyone have a way to do this? I have searched and found nothing on the subject. Any help would be appreciated.
Have you tried using the excel based export/import tool, that has an option to copy out the version files.
It no longer requires a license and is provided with the PW client installs: communities.bentley.com/.../79091.aspx
I have tried it and retried it. I now see why it's free. From what i saw it doesn't allow you to export versions only make them on import. It also doesn't seem to export the documents found by a search. If anyone has wasted their time used the export utility to do this, please post any tips or how-to's you may have, i would love to utilize it. Our current work around takes too long and is very cumbersome. Any other thoughts/suggestions? Maybe i missed some instruction on the tool to make it do what i want?
Just to make sure we are talking about the same thing, I'm referring to the Excel Export/Import tool (installed separately from PW Explorer, but adds additional options- Export menu-export list to excel), it is different than the export wizard (under tools in Windows menu.) I tested and verified that the excel based tool does export the versions:
And as far as the results of a search, you would run the search, select all the files and go to Export-Add to Export List. Then selecting Export-Export to Excel, will export the files you had selected
So close. That does export versions and works well. I can't seem to get it to export just the files i selected. Is there a way to tell that wizard only the selected files? Or maybe i can find that excel export list and point the wizard at it? So close, hopefully i'm just missing one step. When i get to the point of picking files it shows everything not just those i tagged. Thanks for your help thus far.
