I was wondering if there is a workflow for replicating an extract across users, or exporting a file that documents an extract? I am working on some projects with a co-authors where it would be very helpful if I was able to pass them the specifications for an extract, from my data extracts, and then have them execute the same thing in their space. Is there a way for doing this programmatically? Right now we are trying to copy the full datasets and sometimes replicate other extracts by hand using codebooks, which is cumbersome.
I saw some previous postings asking about this, and did not see any functionality mentioned. It would really help me out with my work on the CPS, IPUMS USA, and NHGIS (among others).
