Can I export a family table instance out of Creo 2.0 or Windchill?

Whenever I export a family table instance out of Creo, it only export the generic.  Is there a way to export just the instance without either saving the instance as a different part number and export that number or using Power Shell?

 

Running Creo 2.0 & Windchill 10.0

File- Save As - Save a Backup will let you go outside of Windchill and pick a folder location.

Do a backup of just the generic file. There is only 1 file that contains all of the instances.

If you need to export just 1 instance, then do a save as to another folder on disk to get that one instance.

Thanks Ben.  We'll have to do a Save As another name in our workspace and export that way since working with Windchill isn't allowing us to automatically choose another location for the Save As.  We're starting to work with 3D Interconnect with Solidworks and needed the specific instances of the parts.

The Save As should allow you to choose a system directory outside of Windchill, which is where you want the individual members so you can use them with SolidWorks.
