Jama Connect User Guide

Exports

Select the data you want to export using advanced filters or the Explorer Tree and export directly to Word or Excel from List or Reading View. Use these options to quickly export without a template.

If you view your filter results in Reading View, you see container items. These items offer a sense of hierarchy and visual context and are included in your export. However, you can't select or change containers from Reading View.

Important considerations

Data exported from Jama Connect to Excel can be interpreted as formulas in Excel, leading Excel to evaluate the cell and return a value. For example, if the name of an in item in Jama Connect is “=1338-1”, Excel interprets it as a formula and the value is displayed as “1337”. All Excel formulas begin with the equal symbol (=). When Excel encounters a field value that starts with =, the cell might interpret it as a formula.

To avoid issues with how Excel might interpret data, don't use field names starting with the equal symbol (=).
