Exporting Data with the Siebel Handheld Application

You can export data from any view in your application in HTML format or as tab delimited text and save it to a file. This file can be viewed in applications such as Microsoft Pocket Word, Microsoft Pocket Excel, and Internet Explorer.

For information about how to export data, see the online help for the Siebel Handheld application.

In the Export dialog box, you can specify the following:

  • Format. Specify either HTML or Tab delimited text file.
  • Export. Select Only active applet to export only the data in the active applet. Select All applets in view to export the data in all visible applets.
  • Output file name. By default, the file is saved in the temp directory with the filename "output." You can tap Browse to specify a different location or filename.
  • Paste Output to Clipboard. Select the check box to save the data to the clipboard.
  • Open file. Select the check box to automatically open the file. When you tap OK in the Export dialog box, the data is exported to the specified file, and the file is automatically opened.
