    Status: Under investigation.

    Export to doc or docx currently tries to connect to MS Word and uses their conversion filter. It's possible MS Word has changed something to stop this filter being used. I'll make further investigations, but for now, you could use RTF export if you want to load the document into Word.

    In a future version, doc and docx will use a built-in process and not depend upon MS Word. This will allow docx use in OpenOffice and other office type suites.

    Thanks Chris.

    I would also prefer to see an export to CSV as an option, if this is possible please?

    A CSV export option is certainly a possibility for a future version. Your suggestion has been added to the development schedule.

    1. Status: Development In Progress
      Microsoft no longer support the use of their filters due to "security reasons" (shrugs). Therefore, a built-in docx filter will be developed.

    2. Status: Completed.
      CSV export is now in version
