    From Events in Cvent, Can you export sessions information as a excel file instead of a text deliminate?

    Hi Kenneth,

    I'm using Flex, there's no option other than Text. Then, you have to go "old school," save the text file, open a blank excel workbook, then open the text file. (Reminder, when searching for the text file, in the dialog box, change "all excel files" to "all files"

    Hope I've helped!

    In my experience, a text file is BEST. Sometimes there are commas or other kinds of "delimiter" characters in session names or descriptions, and this "breaks" the column formatting in the export. You can program a macro in Excel to take care of the formatting niceties when you are exporting sessions.

    Is the reason you want it as excel cause you're having trouble opening it in excel?

    and Is it just me... 
    I export the session file and then open that just exported file in another meeting and it can't open it?
