Export points to Datacollector and create Points list

I had to create a boundary map and place points to all corners.  I'm trying to figure out how to export these newly created points back into my data collector (Ranger) and also I'm trying to figure out how to print out a points list. 

 

I stumbled on to this thread but I guessing that it's a different CAD year becuase my modify tab doesn't look like this...

Well, I just figured out how to print my point list (exporting point data) in the help menu.  But I still would like to know how to export just certain points or a range of points.  Also, would like to know how to import these points into my datacollector.

 

Partial Solved...

To export specific points, you need to add them to a point group first. Once the point group is created, you can simply right click on the point group name and choose "Export Points".

interesting...when I right-click on a point group, it doesn't have the option "export points"  I see export points in XLM

Are there points in the point group? I just tried it with an empty point group, the option wasn't there.
