Advanced Exporter (VSys Anywhere)

The Advanced Exporter in VSys Anywhere is similar to custom column reports in that you specify a data source, fields from that source and one or more filters. Instead of printing to PDF or some other "view" format, it creates an export file that you can use in other programs. Send data to another program, or do a mail merge using Microsoft Word, OpenOffice, or your own database.

Data source

This is the type of data you're exporting, for example "People" or "Assignments". See Types of reports for more details.

Export format

Tab-delimited, Comma-delimited, Excel, Excel 2007, dBase or Microsoft Access; the options available here are set in the tool profile for this tool.

E-mail results...

If checked, when the export is run, it will be e-mailed to the person who ran it.


Used for your purposes.


Add zero or more advanced filters using Add filter; click Edit next to a filter to edit, disable or delete it. See VSys Anywhere advanced filters.


Add at least one export field by clicking on Add field.

Field is the underlying data field in VSys; if you enter a Title then VSys will export the data with that field name, otherwise it'll use the Field name.

Re-ordering fields

You can re-arrange the fields in an export by "grabbing" a field with your mouse and "dropping" it in a new location.

Records are only included in this export if they meet all of the criteria you specify.
