  • In the Results Manager box: Under Results, click in the radio box next to Selected Results (you may also enter a range of references in the box beneath it). Under Fields, choose Complete Reference. Under Result Format, choose Direct Export. Note: please do not check the box for “Include Search History”. Under Actions, click on the Save button.
