Export all Fields with Field type data

  • 1.  Export all Fields with Field type data

    Hello,

    I want to export all of my fields in my app with their field types, but when I try to export data, it says the Report is too large and the Maximum number of bytes in report exceeded. Is there a different way around this?

    Thanks,
    Jenna

    I'm not quite sure what you mean by "with their field types", but you can make a report which has a filter for say about 50% of the records and see if that will export.  You can look at the highest and lowest Record ID# and put in a filter to do half at a time..  The table reports have a More ... option to save as spreadsheet.

    Hey Mark,

    Sorry for the confusion. I want to export all of my fields from a certain table and I want it to also show me the field types for all my fields. Is there possibly a way to export the field settings for a particular table?

    Jenna,
    In the app exchange is a good tool called 'Virtual Empower: App Library' written by quick base implementation consultant  Ryan Pflederer.  This will help you with documenting field types.
