Filtered data export

There is a filter in the Data Export wizard window.

Data Export wizard

If you want to filter data, use the required column filter. To do this, firstly write a whole data query using the SELECT * FROM statement. Click Execute to implement the query. Then, on the required column name, click the filter icon. In the drop-down list, choose the item to filter by. Right-click the filtered grid, and select Export Data to call the Data Export wizard.

Another and the most reliable way to export filtered data is to filter it directly in the query. Execute the SELECT * FROM statement with the WHERE condition, where you can specify the required filter. And then implement already filtered data export with the Data Export wizard, calling it from the filtered grid shortcut menu.

Filter data in the SELECT statement using the WHERE condition

Follow the Data Export wizard steps, click Export. If the data export is finished successfully, the Data export complete message appears.
