Export Insights

In Analytical Designer, you can export your insights as XLSX or CSV files.


  1. Open or create the insight you want to export.
  2. Click the three dots in the top right corner.
  3. In Export to, select XLSX or CSV.
  4. Save the file.

Export file types


Export your data to an XLSX file if you want to analyze the formatted data in a spreadsheet. 

By default, insights that are grouped by attributes contain merged cells in the exported XLSX file. To export without merging, unselect Keep attribute cells merged in the Export to XLSX dialog.

If you have any filter enabled in the insight, you can add the description of the filters to the exported XLSX file. To do so, select Include applied filters in the Export to XLSX dialog.

The following image shows the difference between exported data with merged and unmerged cells in the Date (Date) column.

By default, the Keep attribute cells merged option in the export dialog is selected. To change the default status, set the cellMergedByDefault platform setting to false. For details, see Configure Various Features via Platform Settings.

You can add up to five rows of additional text when exporting data to an XLSX file. For details, see Configure Custom Headers for XLSX Report Exports.


If you want to process report data in more detail in another application, and do not need formatting, export the report as a CSV file.

When you export to CSV, formulas in attribute and attribute header cells are automatically escaped using quotation marks. This does not apply to raw CSV exports. To turn this feature off, contact GoodData Support.
