When I try to export from with the CA, I don't get an option " yes, export the private key" and on the export file format " Personal Information Exchange - PKCS#12(.PFX)" is greyed out".

For Citrix NetScaler, I need .pfx SSL certificate. But I received .cer SSL file. To convert this CER file to PFX, I have followed below process.
Opened Certificate MMC --> Imported the CER file in PERSONAL\Certificate --> Export
When I try to export from with the CA, I don't get an option " yes, export the private key"  and on the export file format " Personal Information Exchange - PKCS#12(.PFX)" is greyed out".

As the expert advice, below has the screen run-through. Can also check out the last resort troubleshooting tactic.

If your imported SSL certificate and it does not state you have a private key then your private key was either corrupted or never generated on this system. You will have to start from scratch generating a new CSR > Perform a reissue of the SSL Certificate > then perform SSL Certificate installation.

Finally resolved the issue.
1. I have to import or install the CER on the same server.. where I have created the CSR.
2. Then I can export as .pfx.
