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?
The second, i am trying to export just the selected docs. I tried as suggested but same result. Its like it doesn't see that list. I am doing a re-install, hopefully that will resolve the issue, as it appears this will do what i want if it works.
UPDATE: Re-install did not change the outcome.
Can you explain the steps you are taking, and what it is that isn't working? If I undertstand correctly, the wizard isn't acknologing the files you added to the export list? Are you running the wizard through the start menu, or through export-export list to excel?
I get into a folder, "Email", i run a search for "Bob", the results show up. I select all the results, right click, export, add to export list, then export list to excel. In the wizard that comes up when i get to the point of selecting files to export i just get the entire contents of "Email" and no where to see the search results.
I was finally able to reproduce your issue, it does appear there is a known issue using this process against search results. The defect number is 28457, which we can add you to if you provide me your contact information.
