To-date, the ExportR software has assisted in the extraction of data from over 200 Advanced Revelation, Revelation and OpenInsight applications world-wide.
I have just concluded evaluating your product (ExportR) and I must say I was impressed with the ease of use of the product. Within minutes (no exageration here) I have managed to get all my tables in csv format which I can now manipulate further in MS Office products
All this by just following the 4 simple steps you sent me
I must tell you that I also gave a good look at Exorsys's XPORT
I say a 'good look' cause I spent much more time than in ExportR trying to export using the supplied information but without any success
It could be that my lack of expertise in using Revelation prevented me from using this software. But this is the reason why I would like to export the data in the first place; I want 'ease of use' for my user & me! I would not like to become an experienced Revelation user just to export from it
Hence your product is just right for my case
I also browsed the electronic manuals that came with each evaluation copy
Apart from the ExportR manual being half the size of the XPORT manual, the former is more understandable to me
Although both products offer good selection & formatting options, I prefered to export the data with relative ease using ExportR (without any special options) and then do further processing outside Revelation
...was able to quickly and accurately export our client's Argus data from OpenInsight database files into distinct tables in a Microsoft Access MDB.
I uploaded my client's source .LK and .OV files and, within 2-3 days, Jocelyn uploaded the exported data along with validation tables from the export process.
With the resulting export, I was able to easily convert my client's data into our collection management system (TMSLight).
Your software allowed us unprecedented access to our data that we are now using to create targeted marketing efforts.
Thanks to your assistance, we were able to complete our conversion in 1 day, and will likely defer an expensive upgrade of the incarnation of AREV we currently use.
An added bonus is the peace of mind knowing our data is secure in a non-proprietary format and we are no longer shackled to a single source for access.
The data exporting is going well. I have been able to extract all data from all Arev tables on our production system.
...the management team is very pleased with the progress so far. This is the first time that data has been able to be extracted from our production Arev system without the need for custom programs... once completed reporting will be a breeze.
I'm doing a conversion into a SQL database - this tool has been absolutely FANTASTIC!!!
I don't think I ever would have made it if it were not for this...
Definitely money well spent!!
I have used ExportR to extract Advanced Revelation's data for conversion to a SQL schema. ExportR and the Access database builds have saved me innumerable hours in documenting and mapping conversion data. ExportR is particularly useful for non-AREV programmers, such as myself, who don't know and don't have the time to learn TCL command prompt programming.
The program extracts not only the data, but also the metadata (i.e. field names, positions, column header, indexing detail, help screen text etc.). I would recommend ExportR for anyone needing to quickly and accurately convert Arev data to another platform.
Your program worked as advertised, allowing us to convert 14 years of Advanced Revelation data into exactly the format needed to import into our new application. No intermediary steps were required. The entire process, which resulted in the creation of almost 350Mb of formatted files ready for import to the new system, took only a weekend.
I can also say that ExportR is an outstanding value, a bargain in every sense.
... the tools have been invaluable and have saved months of work and prepared the information in a way that should make it relatively easy to construct a fully functional Access database using the information and data fields from the older AREV database.
