Export Search Result

Depending on your Search Target, then search result may be exported in two different formats:

  • XML Export – exports to a file in XML format.
  • Text Export – exports to a file in CSV format. This comma separated file may be opened with e.g. Excel.
Note.jpg The file format CSV has its limitations. As an example non-Latin characters are not supported. A possible workaround is to copy the rows from the Search Results window and paste them into Excel.
Warning.jpg When you open the CSV file in Excel, Excel will automatically interpret data like 1-10 as 10-Jan.

Therefore check carefully the result in Excel before sharing the export result with others. A workaround for this Excel behaviour is described here.
