Notice that the file is a “zip” file. Select “Open” and you will see the following dialog box. From this dialog box you can just “Drag” the file to the location of your choice. Be sure to drag the “.dat” file. That is the export file. Be aware that it may have a “media” looking icon. Even though the icon may not look as you expect, this is the export file you need.
Once you have save your exported file, you are ready to run the Neighborhood Buying Patterns application. When you run the application you will need to point to the exported data file, so make sure that you’ve placed the file in an easy to find place. We also recommend that you rename the file to a more descriptive file name.
