Issue Details

I would like to export all of my user or computer information from NI Volume License Manager 3.x (NI VLM) to a text file or spreadsheet. How can I accomplish this?


Complete the following steps to export this data:

  1. From within NI VLM, navigate to either the Users or Computers tab.
  2. The visible columns are the only ones you will be able to export. If you do not need to make any more columns visible, jump to step 4. If you want to include additional fields that are not in the current view, you can add any desired columns by right-clicking on the column header area and selecting Add/Remove Columns as shown below.
  1. In the customization window that appears, double click on the column header you would like to add.
  1. Once you have all of the desired fields displayed, select the desired users or computers for export.  Use <Ctrl-A> to select all users or computers or hold the <Shift> key to select multiple items at once.
  1. Press <Ctrl-C> to copy the data to the Windows clipboard in tab-delimited format.
  2. Press <Ctrl-V> to paste the data into a program of your choice, such as Notepad or Microsoft Excel.​
