There may be times when you want to work on dictionary entries outside of SDM. For example, you may want to export a UD, TM, or ND to Microsoft Excel format, so you can perform Excel activities on the file. You can then use SDM’s import feature to import the file back into a dictionary if desired.
Open the dictionary that you want to export.
On the File menu, click Export. The Export dialog box appears. (The Export command is only available when a UD is open in the SDM window.)
Navigate to the location where you want the exported file to be saved.
For File name, enter a name for the file that will contain the exported entries.
For Type, select a format to export the file to.
Click Save to export the entries to the file.
