This topic is for IT personnel of your school. It requires basic software programming skills.
Please see this topic for simpler way of exporting data from aSc Timetables:
aSc Timetables can export data into "aSc Timetables XML" file. There are 3 types of export
1) Default export - exports only basic data
If you need to export some additional data not present in default export, you need to use configured export:
Export configuration files are stored in C:/TimeTables/template/xmlexport directory. To invoke configured export, go to menu - File - Export - Name of your export (displayname).
You can find sample export configuration file here:
This is just a sample. You can choose any tables/columns you wish. Don’t forget to configure idprefix option (if you need to get your ids). Also fill displayname (=name of menu item in aSc Timetables export menu) and displaycountries (=comma separated list of Internet country codes). Rename the file to “program_cc.xml”, where “program” is name of your software and cc is country code of your country. When you have this file finished, email it to us and we will include it in standard installation of aSc Timetables.
Note: XML export configuration file is something like "blank database". It contains only tables and column definitions, but usually there is no data in these tables.
Please see Import from XML on how to enhance XML file with new tables/columns.
Creating combined XML import + XML export configuration file
You can find instruction how to implement this here.
