About Export to Excel

Updated 1 year ago by Isabelle

Maximizer exports the currently selected entries for the active page using the column setup and coloring rule displayed in that page. If no entries are selected, it exports all displayed entries.

If the column setup includes multiple fields in a single column, each field is displayed in a separate column in Excel, with each column named after the Maximizer field name. For example, if the column setup includes a column named “Details”, which contains the fields “Contact Name”, “Next Action”, and “Last Modified Date”, the Excel spreadsheet would contain three columns named “Contact Name”, “Next Action”, and “Last Modified Date”.

If the column setup includes a table user-defined field, multiple table items are combined into a single cell in Excel. For example, if the column setup includes a column for the “Partner Interests” table user-defined field, and the “General Information”, “Press Releases”, and “Technical Bulletins” table items are selected, the Excel spreadsheet would include a column named “Partner Interests” containing “General Information, Press Releases, Technical Bulletins” in a single cell.

If you use Excel 2007 or later, you have the option of performing an advanced export to Excel. This option lets you apply conditional formatting to numeric user-defined fields. You can choose the same data bars, color scales, and icon sets that are available in Excel. See the Excel documentation for more information on conditional formatting.

The Advanced Export to Excel command is available only in Microsoft Internet Explorer.

Note that reports exported to Excel are not dynamic, meaning they do not automatically update when changes to the exported entries are made. To update an exported report, repeat the export process.
