    You can export all of your instance data to a text file by following the instructions in our help guide: http://www.perfectforms.com/Documentation/manual/html/?d_exportingformsandformdata.htm.

    Keep in mind it will export in our schema. If you want it in your schema you should use the Connection Agent to programmatically write to a database of your choosing when the instances are submitted.

    Workflow software, Process software, Procedure software

    Dennis,

    After you export the text file and the attachments for the instances, is there a way to import them back into PF?

    You haven’t deleted the instances, you have simply exported the data. The instances remain.  There are a couple of different ways to create new instances and populate them from data in an outside source. You could use the API: http://www.perfectforms.com/Documentation/manual/html/?add.htm. Or you could use a connection from the Connection Agent to populate a new instance: http://www.perfectforms.com/Documentation/manual/html/?d_databaseconnections.htm
