Hi Kotlas,

To export the information you need, go to TopTool / Configuration / Dictionary and then run the exportation option.
After finished, go in the instalation folder, Config...\Database\Tools and look for the txt files.

Elem.txt is the list of single elements
Tool.txt is the file with the mounted tools
CutSp.txt is the file that have the cutting conditions for the tools
MatP.txt is the materials of the part to cut
MatO.txt is the materials of the tool
...

Hope it can help... :wink:

Hi Kotlas,

If you edit the file "Exportation.wgl" with Notepad, you will see this lines:

nfile = H.Rep+"\"+nTable+".txt"

I made the test, and it's possible export to Excel, I made a copy of the Exportation.wgl change the option from .txt to .xls in several lines:

nfile = H.Rep+"\"+nTable+".xls"

.... And it's fine :)

Best Regards
Flávio
