Export model data into MS Access?

What is the easiest way to export a list of entities and attributes (for example) into MS Access, or indeed any database, from VP? I expect if I put my mind to it I could write a plug-in to do this, but is there a quicker, easier way? Is there somewhere where people who have written plug-ins can share them with other users?

Hi Andre,

Thanks for your post. We are sorry that we do not support MS Access. Alternatively, you can export ERD into CSV, which may be helpful for you to port the data to MS Access.

For exporting to CSV, please download the attached file “CSV_Plugin”, following the steps below to deploy the plug-in in VP:

  1. extract CSV_Plugin.rar (you can find a folder “com.vp.plugin.sample.csvexporter” inside)
  2. in VP installation folder, create a folder “plugins”
  3. put the folder “com.vp.plugin.sample.csvexporter” inside “plugins”
  4. startup the application and you will see the icon “Export CSV File” on the toolbar (you can refer to the attached image)

I hope this would help. If there are any further inquiries, please do not hesitate to contact me again.

Best regards,
Lilian Wong
