Export Parameter table as .XML file

Can anyone tell me how I can Export the parameter table in .xml format? I only have the option for .csv and .txt. I know you can export to .xml because I have done it before, but now the option is not available.

Hi,

 

I believe there was a support article out of this.

Perhaps this applies to your case also?

 

Article - CS303553
File > Import Data/Export Data missing from Parameters window in Creo Parametric

-----------------------clip clip

Applies To:

Creo Parametric 4.0 to 8.0

 

Description:

  • How to get option to export/import parameters as XML file from Parameters dialog box
  • Import/Export parameters as XML option missing from Parameters window
  • How to import parameters as XML
  • Absence of import/export parameters as XML
  • In Parameters tab for 3D model, Import Data feature disappeared
  • Importing parameter as xml file greyed out

 

Cause:

  • ASSEMBLY license feature missing from session

 

Resolution:

  • Reconfigure or add Assembly license feature to session
    • Reconfigure Creo Parametric to use base license which has ASSEMBLY option module
      • CS60577 How to reconfigure Creo Parametric
  • To include ASSEMBLY module into session
    • File > Options
    • Licensing > Refresh License List
      • From Floating modules area, select ASSEMBLY module > OK
        • NOTE: Reconfiguration is complete for current Creo Parametric session
        • ASSEMBLY module will not exist when session is closed
  • If using Windchill, when modifying data in check-in, Import Data menu does not display in Parameters command
  • Starting from Creo Parametric 8.0.5.0, Assembly license feature is not required to import parameters via XML any more.

Hi,

in Part and Assembly mode (Creo 5.0.5.0) I can see following dialog.

Export of parameters in XML was introduced in Creo 4 or 5. What version are you on?

Sorry, I should have listed this... I am using Creo 6.0.3.0. I was wondering if there is a config option that changed or something? I know I used to have this option.

Hi,

rename your config.pro file to ensure that the problem is related to configuration option.


Martin Hanák

Thanks for suggesting that. I should have thought of that...but it didn't change anything. Even when not loading our config.pro file it still does not list the option to export as .xml.

Hi,

do you have only 1 Creo installation ? If not can you see the same problem on other computers ?


Martin Hanák

Hello, 

 

I was just dealing with the same issue. The solution is kinda easy. Just use the command below "Export Data" -> "Save Configuration As". By default it saves an xml file.

 

EDIT:Aww, dayum, it doesnt save the params and values. **bleep**.

 

CREO 7.0.2.0 has the same options as you have.

Thanks!  I was wondering why it is only sometimes that I am able to export / import parameters using XML.

(in our company, sometimes a license pack without the ASSEMBLY module is assigned to me...)
