I see there is an option in Excel to import data from a comma delimited text file.  Is there a way to export data to a comma-delimited text file?

You can save the file as Comma Delimited, i.e. Open the Excel file, choose save as and then select the file type as CSV-Comma Delimited and save it. Open the file using notepad to see comma delimited values.

If the file has multiple worksheets, only the active sheet will be copied to the CSV file.

Ideal if you want to export certain data for transferring to another system.
