I would like to export (preferably to sdf and/or excel) but only the fields that show up in the current view or by using some customized export template.  It would make routing exporting for specific reasons more smoother than specificly selectiving all the fields at the time of export. 

What is the best method for this?

Hi ,

I think currently the only way is to select which entity.fields to export in the export to file wizard dialog using the add/remove buttons. However, I don't think you can save this choice as a template as you would need to repeat each time...

That's right, there is no way to do this from the UI, but it would be quite simple to write a script to do this. The fields to export would be specified in the script and all you would need to do is run it each time to get a reproducible export.

See here for an example script:
