Description

READMOL filename Reads a specified structure file and replaces the current molecule in the form. Operates on the current molecule only if there is at least one structure-related box (structure, formula, or molweight) on the form, and you are positioned to a valid entry in the database. The format of the file is determined by its extension. For example, benzene.cdx is a ChemDraw file.
WRITEMOL filename Saves the current molecule to a specified structure file. If the file doesn't exist, it is created, otherwise it is overwritten.  Operates on the current molecule only if there is at least one structure-related box (structure, formula, or molweight) on the form, and you are positioned to a valid entry in the database. The format of the file is determined by its extension. For example, benzene.cdx is a ChemDraw file.
WRITETEXT filename Exports the current list as delimited text with whatever delimiter is specified in the Preferences dialog.
