My users often need to send a "snapshot" from a view via e-mail. I created two smart icons for them - one for exporting, one for importing. They can then select a number of documents in a view, click on a the Export Icon, then open an e-mail, click in the body of the document, click on the Import icon and viola! instant text list from the selected docs in the view. Very popular - almost no code!
Export Smart Icon: @Command([FileExport]; "Tabular Text"; "c:\temp.txt") Import Smart Icon: @Command([FileImport]; "ASCII Text"; "c:\temp.txt")
