Exporting Items

You can export project items to work with them in other applications such as Microsoft Word or Excel. You can also export your sources and nodes to HTML, so you can open them in your web browser. This can be useful if you want to share project items with someone who does not have NVivo.

You can set a default location for exported items—refer to the File Locations tab in Setting Application Options for more information.
