Exporting entries

Databases and database entries can be exported into another file format through Tools → Export.

Supported Formats for Export

Databases can be exported into one of the following file formats:

  • XML (Extensible Markup Language)
  • CSV (file with entries separated by comma)
  • TXT (text file)
  • HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language)

To export a file into one of these formats, click on Tools → Export.

WARNING: The file formats (XML, CSV, TXT, HTML) do not support encryption. Anyone with access to those files can read their content.

NOTE regarding the .csv file: Every .csv file contains one password per line. Up to nine fields are assigned to each password in turn, separated by semicolon: Description, Importance, Password, Last modified, Expiry Date, User Name, URL, Comments, and Category.

How to Export

Before exporting the content of your file, you need to authenticate correctly first.

Afterwards, you can define the following:

  • Export format: Select the format into which you want to export the content.
  • Target file: Choose a name for your export target file. Click on Browse to define the location for storing it.

Click Next to continue and afterwards, choose one of the offered options depending on the data you would like to export:

  • All entries in the database
  • Entries in the active view
  • Selected entries in

HINT: If you choose the option Selected entries in, you can further select individual folders within your database for export and also decide whether you want sub-folders to be included or not. Besides, additional features are at your disposal here (e.g. Check All or Uncheck All etc.) which are accessible through right-clicking with the mouse on the list of entries being displayed. The option Selected entries in includes all entries of the last view of your database before starting the export wizard.

Click Next again to continue. The wizard will show you the export result. Select Finish to complete the export. When using the .csv format, an intermediate step will be required where you can specify export parameters for the CSV file.

HINT: You can check the option Show the exported file in Windows Explorer. If you select this option you will be forwarded to the Windows Explorer and corresponding directory as soon as you finish the process and close the export wizard. This may be helpful, for example, if you do not remember the directory you chose for storing the exported file when launching the wizard.

NOTE: In this dialog box, in the beginning, you may use the virtual keyboard. This function is situated in the lower left-hand corner of the dialog box.
