How do I Export Customer List?

Export Customer List

Acctivate has a feature to easily export your customer list to a text/csv file.  Alternatively, you can use the SQL Server Query in Microsoft Excel, but this is a simple way to get your full list of customers into a text/csv file.

One-Time Setup

First, you’ll need to define which columns to include in the export file.  The export uses the Customer data view, so you’ll have access to most of the customer account information as well as their balance.  You will only need to set up the fields to include one time in Configuration Management.

Open Configuration Management from the main File menu.
