 +
 +**Note: The RDA to MARC export present in RIMMF3 is a work in progress. **
 +
 +
 +----
 +
 +This option can only be used while in an entity record. If chosen, it:
 +  * converts the entity data to MARC21:
 +    * Manifestation data is combined with selected Work, Expression, and Item data to create a  bibliographic record
 +    * Person, Family, Corporate body, Work, and Expression data export as authority records
 +    * Item data does not export separately (as a holdings record) at this time
 +  * saves the result as a file:
 +    * named: the RIMMF Identifier of the record, with the extension: '.mrc' (e.g., qpq00002482.mrc)
 +    * in your RIMMF3 folder called 'Exports'
 +
 +===== Quick Steps =====
 +  * Keeping in mind the conversion explanation above, in an entity record that you wish to save as a MARC21 record:
 +    * Choose File | Export to MARC; or press <Shift+F7>
 +    * Note the RIMMF Identifier for the record
 +  * Go to your RIMMF3 folder
 +    * open the RIMMF3 folder called 'exports', and find the corresponding MARC record ('.mrc') 
 +    * open the MARC record using some sort of MARC software such as [[http://www.marcofquality.com/soft/softindex.html|MARC Report]], or your ILS system
 +
 +
 +===== Detailed Steps =====
 +To export a RIMMF entity record as a MARC21 record: 
 +  * With the entity record open:
 +    * Choose File | Export to MARC; or press <Shift+F7>

 +{{:menu:top100_exporttomarc.jpg?400|}}
 +
 +    * Note the RIMMF Identifier for the record
 +
 +  * Go to the RIMMF3 data folder called 'Exports' ((When you open a record (not a template), and select the 'Export to MARC' option, or press <Shift+F7>, RIMMF will produce a MARC record, based on the [[details:rda2marcr2|MARC Mapping instructions]]; and write it to that folder.))
 +    * find the corresponding MARC record (using the RIMMF Identifier you noted down earlier)
 +    * open the MARC record using some sort of MARC software. e.g., the [[http://www.marcofquality.com/soft/softindex.html|MARC Report software]] (shown below)
