Import/Export Symbols

I'm upgrading from Autocad Electrical 2011 to 2012. (I will install this on another computer)

But on my 2011 version I have created custom symbols and imported them in the panel aswell.

I think these symbols are stored in two files 'ACE_IEC_MENU.dat' and 'ACE_PANEL_MENU.dat'.


Now i want to re-use these symbols on my 2012 version. How can i easilly export and import those symbols.

Note: I don't want to update all the symbols (probably there will be new in 2012, i just want to use my customs symbols)


Kind regards.
