Export Data Out of QuickBase

You can export data out of QuickBase one table at a time. To do so, you'll save each table's data in a text file format (one of those listed in Step 6 below), which lets you transfer your data to outside spreadsheets or database applications. If you want to export a subset of data (like records you've collected in a report) instead, you can do that too. (Read how.)

Tip: If you want to export data to another application within QuickBase, read about the Import from Table feature.

To export a table's data:

  1. Open the application from which you want to export data.

  2. In the menu bar on any application page, click Customize > Import/Export.

  3. Click the Export a table to a file radio button.

  4. If you're exporting from a multi-table application, select the table from which you want to export data.

  5. Select an export format:

    When you've made a selection, click Export to File.

  6. Save the file.

    If you're exporting to an XML file, the file displays in your browser window. From your browser's menu, select File > Save As to save the file. (If you're using Mozilla Firefox, select File > Save Page As instead.)

    If you're exporting to a comma-delimited or tab-delimited file a File Download dialog box displays. Click Save to display a Save As dialog box. Enter a name and location for the exported file, and then click Save. When the download completes, click Close. (If you're using Mozilla Firefox, click Save to Disk instead.)

Note: You cannot export file attachments.
