Things to know:

1) When exporting to Excel, data is transferred in raw text format. This means there is no formatting, so data can be easily imported into most 3rd party applications. However, you can easily format the exported data if needed.

2) Excel exports are automatically saved on your computer desktop. PDF exports give you the option to choose the save the file location. Both Excel and PDF file names can be renamed after exporting if needed.
