Exporting to CSV Format

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Data from tabular reports can be exported in CSV (Comma Separated Values) format, so that it can be used in other programs that can read CSV data. To save a tabular report as CSV, select File->Export to CSV... from the menu.


Selecting the Columns to Export


The currently visible columns will be exported. You can right click on the column headers and choose Show/Hide Columns to change the list of columns displayed, and drag and drop columns to change their order.


Elapsed Time Data


Excel (and probably other programs) doesn't seem to deal well with elapsed time information - it tends to try to convert it to a time of day. To make elapsed time information such as CPU time and job elapsed time useful, it is exported as the number of seconds instead of a formatted time interval. This can then be converted as required.
