The export dialog box as of now offers three options: "a database", "a table" and "query results". May I request that it additionally offers "view results" as a fourth option? The file selection dialog box on the next page could then default with the view name as the file name. That would be brilliant.

Background: my Journal Entry Testing (JET) query set has now 80+ queries (=views). If I would be able to preserve analysis results to share them with the finance team that runs the original system that would help a lot.

Best regards, Jörg

How about simply opening SQL Editor window and executing SELECT from particular view, then exporting results of that query?

This is what I do now but it is pretty cumbersome if you have several queries and need to export several results. It would save a lot of copy-and-paste if a view result could be exported directly.
And it completes the export offer. The database contains tables, views and queries but you can (as of now) only exprt tables and (manual) queries but not views (stored queries).
