This window commands the export XE "export:Timer activities"  XE "exporting:Timer activities"  XE "exporting:Timer activities"  XE "transfer:Timer activities"  of all time activity records not yet exported, through the date shown, which can be changed.  Selective export can be initiated with View|Time Activity Log, below.

The next window allows naming of the XE "file name:Timer export file"  export file in compliance with your plan for using Timer.  To send the file to a floppy, select by choosing the a: Drive and give it a file name using .iif as a suffix, which will identify it by sending location and date extracted.

Once on floppies or into the network, the exported file will be picked up in the main QuickBooks computer.
