    NoteTo export to Oracle or ESRI ArcSDE, see Exporting DWG Data to an FDO Data Store.
  2. In the Export Location dialog box, select the file format and location for the exported files. For information on the file format choices, see Supported Formats. Click OK.
  3. In the Export dialog box, specify how to export objects. To use settings that you stored previously, click Load and select the profile containing the settings.
  4. On the Selection tab, specify the objects to export.
    • To select a subset of objects, click Select manually and choose either Select Objects or Quick Select.
    • To filter the selection to export only objects on specific layers or in specific classes, specify the layers and classes to include.
    • To export polygons from a polygon topology, select the topology.
    • To preview the objects that will be exported, click Preview Filtered Selection.
  5. On the Data or Feature Class tab, click Select Attributes and select the data to export with the objects.
    Tip If you are exporting data from an external database, you can export the entire record from the database or just the key fields. Because the key field values are stored in the map, choosing the key field (listed under Link Templates) makes the export faster.
  6. On the Feature Class or Options tab, select the options you want.
  7. Click OK to begin the export process.
