Exporting Execution Results

With Remote Shutdown, you can easily export the execution results of a business operation to the CSV file format for future analysis or processing by an automated tool. To export the execution results, click the Export button from the Execution Results view toolbar. You are proposed to choose between exporting the selected results and all results. You can also press the Export button from the Organize Ribbon group on the Program page when the Execution Results view is in focus. It is also possible to use the pop-up menu of the Execution Results view to export the results. The Export Execution Results Wizard will appear on the screen Pic 1.

The first page of the Export Execution Results Wizard is the welcome page used to introduce you to the feature the wizard is supposed to help you with. After reading the welcome information, press Next to continue with export.

On the next page of the Export Execution Results Wizard, you are offered to choose the file you are going to save the execution results to and the CSV format options. The file path should be provided to the Export To field Pic 2. You can choose the encoding to be used for saving the data, as well as the field delimiter and the text qualifier. While performing export, you may also define if you would like the column header to be present in the resulting file, which would make it easier for you to identify each column. This feature can be enabled using the Include column header option.
