The exported Excel file contains all or changed properties that are visible in the changes list. The information is exported in the current language.

  • Type
  • GUID
  1. When the reference model change management is active and the changes list is displayed, clickExport to Excel.
  2. Filter which properties are shown in the property changes list and exported to the Excel file by using the comparison set filtering.
  3. In the Export to Excel dialog box, define the needed settings:

    • Template : Select a new Excel template for the export.

    • Export details : Exports all property details. Property details are shown collapsed by default. When you open the collapsed details by clicking the plus (+) button, all details are listed under titles Name , Old value and New value.
    • Changed details only : Only exports those property details that have changed between reference modelmodel which the designer can use as an aid when building another model

      A reference model is created in Tekla Structures or in other software and can be inserted to Tekla Structures. The reference model appears together with the model but it is not modified by Tekla Structures. The user can snap to reference model points.

      For example, an architectural model, a plant design model, or a heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) model can be a reference model.

  4. If you want to save the settings in a properties file to be loaded and used in other exports, enter a name and click Save.
  5. When you are ready, click Export.

    The changes list is exported to an Excel spreadsheet.

    If you want, you can save the Excel where ever you want.
