You can quickly export your data from MetaLocator into a spreadsheet format. The process is quite simple, and begins by logging into the MetaLocator Control Panel, choosing Data, then Export.
There are a few options to explore. Just clicking Export will export all of your data into a CSV spreadsheet for download. This file will be emailed to the currently logged in user. A link to the spreadsheet will also be added to the User Notification section as shown below:
Exporting Selected Records
If you prefer to export data that originated from a certain Import, you can choose the filename from the the drop down list.
If you have created a search under Data > All Records as shown below...
This filter will persist in the Export process, as notified on the Export screen. This is helpful when exporting a subset of records that may match complex criteria like a certain state, keyword or categories.
Exporting the MetaLocator ID
Also, you can choose if you would like to include the MetaLocator-assigned ID number. When importing your data, if the system encounters the MetaLocator-assigned ID number, it will UPDATE the records with a matching ID number instead of inserting new records.
