exporting midi

I need to export some midi tracks from sonar 7 Producer edition into Protools LE  how do I go about doing this.  I need to be able to get programmed drum tracks that I have into protools and still have them be editable.   I can't for the life of me figure it out and I have a session on monday.
 
Any help?

    File-Save As
    The File-Save As command opens the Save As dialog where you can save
    a project with the name, directory, and format you specify. The formats
    available are:

    • MIDI Format 0—Standard MIDI File that has all channels merged into
    one track.
    • MIDI Format 1—Standard MIDI File that keeps each channel on a
    separate track.
    • Riff MIDI Format 0—Riff MIDI File of Format 0.
    • Riff MIDI Format 1—Riff MIDI File of Format 1.

    Ya know - - - this is the kind of post that keeps the joke of the Sonar forum alive and well. Research my posts. I am nether preachy nor a snob (typically;) but this is just ludicrous.
    "I am using midi and no nothing about it but I have a session in Monday."
     
    Puh - lease.
     
    The basic rules for midi have been out for twenty years now.
    The basic rules for importing and exporting files in Windows are just as ancient.
    Too bad that Cakewalk has its own set of conventions for at least 15 years!
    What are you gonna do with it once you get it into Pro Tools?
    This is just getting ridiculous.

    Hey Will - Welcome to the forum. 

    I'll bet you're getting quite a first impression. You'll only receive snarky responses maybe 10 to 20% of the time. You should probably just export some MIDI files from your Sonar project, and then post your question in a ProTools forum.

    Good luck.

    slartabartfast gave you the basic skinny on it.  There isn't a way to "export" a midi file.
     
    I frequently do this process to transfer work from Sonar to Finale..... while keeping the project from which you want to export the midi open, create a new project with the correct number of midi tracks and save it as midi format 1 (or 0 but it won't be as editable) - then highlight the tracks you want to "export" and copy them on to the clipboard. 
     
    Then paste the track contents from the clipboard onto your new project, and save it.  You now have your "exported" midi.
     

    Sonar 8.5 Producer Version 8.5.3.282 - Windows XP Home Edition w/all upgrades through SP3 - Windows Vista business SP2 - PreSonus FireBox interface - M-Audio UNO - Behringer UCA202 U-control - ADK ProAudio quad-core 3.2 Ghz overclocked, 8 Gb ram - been with Cakewalk since 3.0 in 1990 ( it was MIDI only...under MS/DOS - computer was 4 MHz :) )

    cool got it figured out.  Im not the engineer or producer of the project, just the guy with the pre-production tracks on his computer.
