Exporting Data from VantagePoint to Smart Charts

When you are ready to return to Smart Charts, click the Export XML Smart Data Exchange button, and follow the wizard.



Records-to-export  You probably want to export All Records, but you can export only selected records or records in a group.

Be sure to add "recordID" to the Fields to Export.  
This is a 'key' field that Smart Charts uses to put the new data with the correct record in the chart.


Export only the new fields from your VantagePoint dataset (in addition to recordID).  Otherwise, you will make extra copies of your original columns in Smart Charts.


If the data originally came from Smart Charts, the export wizard defaults to send the data back to Smart Charts.  Alternatively, you can save the data to a file.


NOTE: To automatically merge your new fields into the original chart, Smart Charts should be running with the original chart loaded.

Smart-Charts-Import  In Smart Charts, select the chart to which the new data should be applied, and click OK.
Smart-Charts-final The new fields are applied to your chart in Smart Charts at the end of the row.
