OVFTool usage to import/export an OVA into/from VMware workstation?

Hi, I have a predefined OVA to be imported into my VMWare workstation. I understood that OVF tool utility can be used for import and export. Now I request to provide a sample command for import my OVA to VMware. As of now, 'mydc.vmx' and 'mydc-disk1.vmdk' files have been generated upon running the command, 'ovftool "E:mydc.ova" "E:mydc.vmx"'. If I manually open and power on this vmx it is working fine. But I'm now struck on deploying this mydc.vmx into VMWare workstation through ovftool utility. Please help me in opening and powering-on this vmx in VMware workstation using OVF tool CLI. Once this VM is on and I need to export this VM as an OVA after some settings in that machine. What is the sample OVF tool command to export as OVA?

Regards,
-Vijay
