I have a database of almost 700 records in Pan 6 which includes an important Notes field containing paragraphs. However, it is not exportable into another app (spreadsheet or database) retaining paragraphs. Apparently it does import into Pan X with paragraphs. A year ago I emailed with Jim who assured me that it would be possible to export from Pan X and retain paragraphs. I am trying out Pan X and so far it does not export, say to Excel, except as one long jumble of text with no returns.
I have watched a lot of the PanX videos but not anything about exporting a field containing paragraphs. I did look in Help and it said “When your Panorama 6 databases are converted to Panorama X, all Auto-Wrap Text objects are converted to Text Display objects with the mode set to Literal . Panorama 6 Text Display SuperObjects become Text Display objects with the mode set to Formula .”
This is over my head. Could someone please tell me before I commit to a PanX subscription if/how I can export and retain paragraphs? Other than this problem, Pan X looks very cool.
I did have some success with exporting from Pan 6 if I added quotes before and after the text in a field. It should not be needed, but if it works, how can I automate that in PanX?
