Showing Relationship data

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page


Just like eaDocX, eaXL can also display information about the relationships between EA elements.

1. In an existing Package worksheet (see Getting Started), select a single type of element in the 'Available type' tree
Note: you can only see information about

2. The 'Related Elements' button is now available

3. Fill-in the details, as you would in eaDocX, with the relationship type and target element type. For example:

eaXl will help you to pick only relationship types and 'To Element' types which actually exist in your model.

3. Now re-export the data, to see the new column.


Note: whilst Excel will allow you to edit the contents of the 'Related People' column, eaXL won't save any of the changes. It's just too complicated. So for relationships, eaXL is a read only interface.

To change the data for these relationships, edit them in EA directly. It's simpler and more reliable.
