Thanks Jenner-Constructi, it's not possible to change the file-type and this will export as a zip-file containing Microsoft Excel Worksheets - are you able to view these when going to the three dots > downloads > show in folder (in Google Chrome)?

Hi @Jenner-Constructi 

 

.zip files are pretty standard (effectively a folder containing the files you downloaded).

Windows (even going back several versions) should open with a double-click without any extra software.  If not, right-click > extract will uncompress the folder & you should have the xsl/csv files inside the new folder.

Hope this helps.
