How can I convert an ANSYS classic material library to be useable in ANSYS Workbench Environment?

According to our development staff, the only conversion path at this time is to write the material properties out to a file
from ANSYS Classic via a CDWRITE command. You can do several properties at once, and no model is
needed as CDWRITE,MAT will write out only the material information. I recommend only grouping
properties that use the same unit system. After writing the file you can close ANSYS Classic. Start ANSYS
Workbench and go into the Engineering Data application. Select Import > Materials . Add > ANSYS cdb
file then browse to the file location, select the units and pick OK. Check the materials that you do want
to import and then pick OK. This brings them in, and you can export them to be used on
other models
