select the schedule - right click - schedule to text

 

also can right click again and select convert to rich text

 

the material list can be exported to Excel and other formats

why not the schedules ?

Sorry if I didn't understand what you meant...you may be aware that a schedule can be copied directly to a spreadsheet. Single click the schedule, ctrl-c, open a blank spreadsheet, ctrl-v in the first cell. That's it.

curious question

 

if schedule can be copied to Excel via copy-paste

 

why does the Material List need to be exported ?

 

seems like they should act the same ?

They ARE the same.  I use Copy/Paste for both almost exclusively.

They ARE the same. 

 

Michael:

 

no, they are not the same

 

Material list has a tool to export to Excel

Schedules do not

 

copy-paste may work but its not the same as having a dedicated tool

why the inconsistency ?

why not have an export tool for schedules ?

You’re moving the goalpost here.  Your question was this....

It was specifically in reference to the ability to copy and paste which is all I was talking about.  The materials list does not need to be exported.  
 

And by the way, I don’t see why anybody would want to export something that could simply be copied and pasted.

yet, the OP had to ask how to get a schedule to Excel

 

if there was an export tool it would be more obvious

 

Material List has an export tool - why not schedules ?
