The purpose of this function is to export data from the MENU database to a series of text files.
The following file is created to aid the process of Internationalisation:
<subsys_dir>/text/<subsys_id>.menu_export.txt - this will contain data from the MENU table, TASK table and NAVIGATION BUTTON table for the subsystem. This information can then be copied into the language_text.inc file in the language subdirectory.
The following file is created so that the details may be imported into another database:
<subsys_dir>/sql/<subsys_id>.menu_export.sql - this will export all the details from all tables in the MENU database which contain objects for the selected subsystem. This will be in the form of a series of SQL
INSERT statements which will allow the details to imported into another database.
This form is accessed by an option on the navigation bar in the List Subsystem screen.
For a complete description of how this type of form works please see Transaction Pattern UPDATE 4.
