The export order function is useful for bringing your order data into other programs, like accounting or shipping label software. You will need Order Download permission to access this function. The following options are available when exporting orders:
Order Numbers – The range of orders to download. By default, the next order after the ones previously downloaded will be pre-entered. This information is saved to a text file which is updated with each order export.
Date Range – Alternatively, you can enter a date range of orders to download. Dates use the format YYYY-MM-DD. You can enter just a start date, or a start and end date. You can use partial dates to do a quick search by month or year, such as 2006-03 to get March 2006 orders.
Output Format – Three types of order exports are available. The first outputs each order on a single line, with all the order data and items in the order included in separate comma-separated columns. The second format is basically the same but using tab-separated columns. The third option exports each order item on a separate line, with each including the associated order information, comma-separated.
