The Metasys Export Utility extracts user-defined data to any of the following file formats:

  • Microsoft Excel (.xls)

  • Tab-delimited text (.txt)

  • Comma-separated value (.csv)

  • Microsoft Access (.mdb)

  • HTML (.htm)

  • XML version 1.0 (.xml)

  • If you change the extension on the Advanced tab of the Export Output Selection dialog box, the Metasys Export Utility only creates output reports using the supported extension types. For example, if you rename a .htm file extension with a .html extension on the Advanced tab, Metasys Export Utility creates the file with a .htm extension.
  • Scheduled Export using the Excel format (.xls) is not supported on Windows Server® 2016, Windows Server® 2012 R2, or Windows Server® 2012. Microsoft Excel reports generation on a Windows 8.1 64-bit machine running on a virtual machine (VM) using the MSEASchedulerService is not supported. All other export formats are supported. We recommend using .csv format for the Scheduled Export and then manually importing the .csv file into Excel and saving it in Excel format.
  • Windows Server 2016, Windows Server 2012 R2, and Windows Server 2012 support On Demand Export using Excel format.
