eXporter is an additional program created to save time for those who do a significant amount of testing. With eXporter, users looking to transfer out tests in bulk can export data directly from the Espion standard
TXT files. This article will go through the steps on how to properly use the eXporter software. Included below is a video that goes over everything in this article in more detail.
Step 1: Transfer Tests from Espion to an EXP File
1) In Espion, select the patient you want tests exported for and then navigate to the protocol selection page. From here select the protocol you are interested in, and then click
2) By default only tests generated by that specific protocol will show on screen. You can use the
Filter Tests By section of the page to change which tests you would like to include. Once you have the tests you are interested in visible on screen click the
Tip: The video included at the top of the article goes over the different options on how to filter tests in more detail.
3) A pop up will appear with three options. Select the options you want and then click
Current Test: Default option. Keep this selected if you only want the highlighted test to be transferred out.
All Test: Select this if you want all tests listed to be transferred out.
Patient Anonymity: Default option. This makes sure patient names and other identifiable information is not included.
3) Another pop up menu will appear where you can choose where to save the
EXP file. Select the location of your choosing and change the name of the file if you would like. Click
Save and you should now have the
EXP file saved!
Step 2: Convert the EXP to TXTs in eXporter
Open and select the
EXP file that was just saved in Step 1.
2) This should load in all tests contained in the
EXP file. If there are a lot of tests to load in, watch the blue loading bar on the bottom right. When it is full all tests should be done loading in.
3) Click the
Options button. Change the settings to your preference and then set the
Export File Path at the bottom of the page. This is where all the
TXT files will be saved. (You may want to create a new folder beforehand and then select it).
Warning: If you don't set the
Export File Path before exporting, all the
TXT files will be saved in the
C:\Multifocal folder which may make them difficult to find.

4) From here you can click the
Export button. A pop up will appear asking if you would like to export all the records that were loaded in or only select ones. Select which one you want (most likely
All Records) then press
Tip: If you would like to select certain records from the loaded list, press
Shift on your keyboard and click the tests you are interested in.
5) All your tests should now be easily accessible as
