Exporting NX CAM Operations

Is there any way to export the operation list from a prt file?

For example I have a short machining program that I'd want to export to another file, like the one attached.operations.png

The idea behind this is to have an additional file so that I can save multiple NC programs for the same prt file.

The simplest way is to use Copy/Paste
- Open both files in one NX session

- Copy all operations you want in first file

- Switch to another file
- Paste operations


The other way is to use your own template file
You  can find some basics about it here:

If you want to export an operation list, use shopdocs or export from the Operation Navigator.

If you want the operations, then copy/paste or browse your part as a template, like @Marek_Pawlus says.

If you want multiple programs for the same part, be sure you are using assemblies, and not creating the operations in the same part as the geometry. If you use file new, you can easily create several setups that reference the same part.
