Exporting grid data

Updated in 8.7

You can export data from any grid into several formats, including:

  • PDF Format
  • Microsoft Excel Spreadsheet Format
  • RTF (Rich Text Format)
  • CSV (Microsoft Excel Comma-Separated Values Format)

To export the data from a grid:

  1. Display the grid that you wish to export the data from. All view customizations, such as filtering, grouping, sorting, etc., remain unchanged when exported.

  2. Select one of the following:

    • If you want to export all rows in the grid, right-click anywhere in the grid and choose View > Export Rows > Export All > [Target Format] from the pop-up menu.

      TIP: Alternatively, when the grid is shown in the main Alloy Navigator window you can click the Export rows icon on the grid's module menu and choose the format to export from the drop-down list.

    • If you want to export data from some particular records:

      1. Select the records to export (for details, see Selecting multiple records).

      2. Right-click the selected area and choose View > Export Rows > Export Selected > [Target Format] from the pop-up menu.

        TIP: Alternatively, when the grid is shown in the main Alloy Navigator window, you can click the Export rows icon on the grid's module menu, choose Export Selected from the drop-down list and click [Target Format].
