Exports

Export defines a set of dataset properties, which will be exported to a spreadsheet file along with the values of respective indicators. Each export must be referenced from it's parent view.

Export counts in all active filters and the map selection.

Syntax

This is one of the exports from the Retail Solution Demo. As you can see, a good description is important.
