Export Database

It is possible to export an offline copy of your Workbooks data as SQL.

To export your database click Start > Configuration > Database > Export Database. Here you'll see a button at the top of the page, which you can click to initiate the export.

You'll be shown information on the estimated file size and a guide on how long the download is likely to take. Please ensure you save the file to a disk with sufficient space.


  • Only users with the Database Export Capability will be able to carry out a database export.
  • You can only export data that you normally have access to. If you want to export ALL the data, make sure that you are logged in as a user with full access.

In addition, wherever you see the export button you can export data to either CSV or in a format compatible with Microsoft Excel. This functionality will export data from all the columns you have activated so remember to configure the screen to reflect the data you want to export before clicking the button. The ability to export in this way is limited to users with the appropriate capabilities for each record type.  If your download doesn't work, the most likely explanation is that a pop-up blocker is in place.
