Formats Support by Quick Export

ADA’s Quick Export utility allows you to export Parquet files to text delimited files and Excel files. Parquet is the format ADA uses for storing data files.

Location of Exported Files

Files exported by ADA’s Quick Export are saved by default to the current project folder.
