Click the ellipsis [...] and choose where to save the file, then select either XML or Comma Separated Values (CSV is quicker and easier to open).




Only Include Primary Contacts

Will only use primary contacts (not every contact), making the file smaller.

Replace empty contacts details with Primary Contact contact details

Will include every contact within a cardfile, and replace any missing details with the Primary Contact details.

Limited Details

Will provide a much less detailed list.


Open the XML or CSV file and a number of rows and columns will show that will need to be cleaned up prior to using.


Export Data

Create a CardFile List, right click within the list and select Export Data. This will save only the data in the list as an XLSX file for editing purposes.


export from grid


Selecting Export Grid will save the data in the list as an XLSX file with all headers intact (useful when there is more than one set of header rows).
