  2. Click Prepare CSV next to Category Spend Data located towards the bottom of the page.

  3. Select a Date Range and the Budget Categories to Export. Important: A date range must be selected for the CSV to contain spend data, otherwise, your CSV will only display the Category Name.

  5. Use the toggle to select if you wish to receive a copy of the CSV by email. This will be sent to the email associated with your Procurify log-in.

  6. Click Export CSV. The export may take a few minutes. Once complete, click the Download CSV button to save the CSV to your computer.

  1. Navigate to Settings β†’ Export Data

  2. Locate and Export Budget Categories by selecting the Prepare CSV button.

  3. Locate and Export the Category Spend Data with the Fiscal Year. Important: ensure to select the same date ranges as you selected for the Budget Category export in step 2.

  4. Open the CSV file for Budget Categories. Locate the column labeled Budget. Copy this entire column, including the column name.
