The extracts available in the People module provide you with multiple options for exporting ACS data. You can export data as not configured files as well as "raw" data.
If you are sending data to an outside supplier, they will usually specify the format. The available file formats include Character Seperated Values, Comma Separated Values (.csv), Data interchange (.dif), DBase format (.dbf), Excel (.xls), Record Style (Columns of Values), Tab-separated text (.txt), Tab-separated values (.txt), and text (*. txt).
Files exported within the OnDemand environment will begin opening in OpenOffice instead of Microsoft® Office. For more information, click here.
The ACS Extracts are available on the ACS People Reports menu under Extracts. To access the extracts in the Searches window, click People Exports.
