Preparing Your Argus Enterprise File

The Assess import feature converts Excel reports from Argus Enterprise into Assess+RE projects with just a few clicks. Looking for Argus DCF exporting? See our article on DCF exporting.

The general outline for exporting your Argus Enterprise files is:

  1. Create a custom Report Package in AE that exports all available reports (you only need to do this one time).

  2. Open a portfolio and highlight the projects that you would like to export into Assess.

  3. Using your custom Report Package, export these reports to an Excel file format.

For detailed instructions on the above steps, see below. If you have already exported your files into Excel reports and are ready to upload them into Assess, see our article on importing.

Note: The following procedure is for Argus Enterprise 11.5, and may vary if you are working with a different version.

Creating a Report Package

1. Open Argus Enterprise, and open the file menu in the top left corner of the window.

2. Click on Control Panel > Report Packages.

3. Click the +Add button to create a new Report Package and give it a name.
4. Click on the small All button to add all available reports into the Selected Reports box.

5. You will see a long list of reports appear in the Selected Reports box on the right. Click Apply.
6. Close the window.

Exporting Your Argus Enterprise Project(s) to an Excel Report
