--Integration Settings--

  1. Include headers in output file - Selecting this option will include the column headers in the export file.

--Export Warnings-- 

After selecting the export option the import program will generate an audit of any data that will not be accepted when importing into Star. There is also a save option to save the audit as a .txt file.
