Any way of transferring records DIRECTLY to another app?

Postby Astroman33 » Tue Mar 31, 2015 12:32 pm

I know that I can email the records or even transfer them to the desktop, but I was wondering if there were a way of directly on the iPhone or iPad of copying the records and pasting them into another app-- say, Numbers or Doc 2 Go?

I often want to see my data graphed with different scaling--and to so on the fly--without multiple steps or putting the data out into the wild.

Alternatively, maybe scaling options could be implemented on the HanDBase graphs!

Most spreadsheet apps support working with CSV files, a format to which HanDBase can export records.

Try the following:

- open your database in HanDBase
- while viewing the list of records, tap the button in the lower right
- from the list of options that appears choose the option to email records
- from the next popup that appears choose the CSV format (if the database has lots of records it is normal for there to be a slight pause at this instance)
- when the Open In dialog opens, you should see the apps installed that support importing of CSV, including your spreadsheet apps

Hope this helps!
