The File Chooser Dialog

In many contexts, AccuRev prompts you to specify a location in your machine's local disk storage.

In each context where you choose a file for input or output, AccuRev suggests the directory you most recently used in that context (or defaults to your home directory).

Where appropriate — for example, in specifying attachments to an issue record — you can specify multiple files at the same time using the standard multiple-selection mechanism: hold down the CTRL key while selecting the items .

In some contexts in which you specify a file (or other data structure) to be created, the dialog includes a  New Folder button. This enables you to create a new directory 'on the fly' in which to create the data structure.

AccuWork Export File Types

The AccuWork Export and Export Table commands create a file from the contents of one or more issue records. In these contexts, the export file must have one of these formats, which you choose from the File Type listbox:


Standard Web-page format. On Windows machines, AccuWork automatically invokes your default web browser, to display the export file.

The contents of the issue record are rendered as one or more HTML tables. In a web browser, each table cell changes height and width when you adjust the size of the browser window. This is particularly useful for viewing the contents of multiple-line text fields.


A more highly structured document, suitable for data interchange. Many web browsers can display XML documents.

Note: The XML-format file does not include a DTD or Schema.

CSV ("comma-separated values") A line-by-line text format, suitable for importing into various applications. On Windows machines, AccuWork automatically attempts to invoke Microsoft Excel, to display the export file.
