And once you know what you’re exporting, you can tailor the fields included in the export – and eaXL presents a list of available fields.
These include all standard EA fields plus any tagged value fields that it finds in the data-set you’ve selected. Choose the ones that you want and then Export to Excel.
eaXL opens Excel inside EA*, and with the tight integration any package structure in the data you have exported will be reflected in the structure opened in Excel. You can expand and contract packages in Excel to hide some detail – useful when you have exported a large amount of data.
*although a ‘feature’ of recent releases of Excel means that the Excel window won’t dock inside EA any more and so must float wistfully around your desktop.
