With the OpenClinica Extract Data module, you can specify criteria for data (define a dataset), then export data that matches the definition to a file (the dataset) for use in other applications. You can select a standard file format to export the data to, then download the data. You can also modify the criteria you specified, then create a new dataset using the updated dataset definition. The Extract Data module also provides tools to help you find and organize the dataset definitions in a Study.

Only users whose Roles have appropriate permission can use the Extract Data module.

You can schedule export jobs to extract data automatically on a recurring basis: see Scheduled Export Jobs.

To extract data from OpenClinica for use with standard relational database and SQL reporting tools, use the Data Mart features, which are available in the OpenClinica Enterprise Edition.
