Export EBMS Data to a Text File

The export feature of the Text Import/Export Utility is used to export data from an EBMS file into a text file. This is the reverse process used for the much more used feature of importing data from a text file. The reason to export would be to move data from the EBMS file to a spreadsheet, make changes, and reimport it back into the EBMS file using the import utility. This feature is not useful to export from the standard EBMS files. Review the Standard Features > Exporting Lists to CSV Files for Mail Merges section for more details on exporting standard data.
