This procedure will export a Project to the .ostxt format in the same way as the Studio GUI:

Tips.pngThis documentation is for a function with limited support, provided for reference; the function should be considered as-is


Begin SaveTextProject;
Project "ProjectABC";
File "/tmp/ProjectABCexport.ostxt";
Options /WriteAnnotation=True;

If the Project statement is omitted, the active project will be exported (e.g. in a pipeline OScript).

Warning.png WARNING: File must be a physical path on the relative host.


An OSTXT file will be generated for all tabular data in the project. Each object is identified by bracketed labels, with the table contents below.

The following is an example project exported to OSTXT, with the top three lines printed.
