An M3U playlist file will also be created. ## Exporting A Spreadsheet Roon's Export feature can also export information about your library. This is done by exporting a spreadsheet of your content, which can be used for cataloging your library. To export a spreadsheet, start by [selecting the content](https://kb.roonlabs.com/FAQ:_How_do_I_select_songs_or_albums%3F_What_can_I_do%3F) you want included in the spreadsheet. <img src='http://roon-kb.s3.amazonaws.com/bdbfd963-234e-4a9c-b96e-620415e1316d.png'/> Choose Export from the selection bar, and then choose the _Export To Excel_ tab: <img src='http://roon-kb.s3.amazonaws.com/497c105d-d018-427f-92a8-9525d2ca5a0d.png'/> ## TIDAL and Qobuz Content Because TIDAL and Qobuz content is not stored locally, it cannot be exported.
