How to Export/Import for use in another ESHA installation

The following steps are for use if you wish to save a Recipe (or any document, such as Ingredient or Person) for the purpose of using it in another installation of the program.  Common examples for this is to share a record with a colleague, or use this record on a different computer.

Once imported, the document exists as any other document manually created. For example, if you have transferred a Recipe, after import the recipe can be opened by clicking the Recipe/Formula button, or File / Open / Recipe.
