Quick Export

I have a MAC.  When i use quick export to generate a student list or other needed report, it automatically sends it to Notepad.  I need it to be in Excel.  How do I change the settings to make it export information to Excel?

  2. Continue to hold OPTION and select the application you want to set as the default for this file

 

Option 2:

  1. From the Mac file system, select a file of the general format type you wish to change the default application for
  2. Pull down the “File” menu and choose “Get Info” (or hit Command+i) to access the Get Info window
  3. Click the “Open with:” sub menu, then click on the contextual menu and select the new application to associate all files of this format type with
  4. Click the “Change All” button and confirm the change when requested
  5. Close out of Get Info, repeat for other file format types if necessary
