Exporting Processes by Command

The Export Process command, found in the File menu and the toolbar, export PRCX files (PRC in previous versions) to specific locations.

All or selected tasks can be exported from any of the processes you have access to.

Several additional options allow you to decide exactly which parts of the process you want to export, for example an empty process, or also its dataset, as well as macros, process variables and graphic elements.
