Repeat Signage digital signage software


This is just a basic utility to export your data.  This can be useful if you want  to send some of your database information to a remote Repeat Signage computer for use by a presentation  it is playing.  For example, you could export some current product information from your database, upload to your free account, and then the remote computer can use this information.  When you want to update it, you can just export and upload again.

Export formats

If you have filtered the data in your table on the previous screen, then using the 'Current table with filter option' will apply the filter and only export the current data on screen for the current table.

Here is a summary of your export options:

Export format Description
CSV file A plain text file that can be read by many computer programs such Microsoft Excel, OpenOffice Calc, and is a tradition format used for years to transfer data to other types of computers.  The drawback is that these contain only data from a single database table.
XML file This is the current standard format for sending database information over the Internet.  Currently, only the currently selected table will be outputted
Repeat CSV format This is the same as a CSV file, but within the column headers we also export the data type of each column so that another Repeat Signage computer reading this file will get the database columns formatted correctly.  One issue with CSV files is that it is sometimes hard to detect the data type of each column.  This means that when you write SQL statements within Repeat Signage to retrieve the data, number and date columns especially, will always be imported correctly.


Feel free to email our Support Department at if you need any help.  You are also welcome to email or send small databases such as Microsoft Access .mdb files, XML and CSV files and will help you collect the information you want to display.  Support is free of charge.
