Download from the Marketplace to a file

DataMarket Logo

From the Windows Azure Marketplace (WAM) query results screen, you can export the query results to other software. This topic covers downloading your query results to a .CSV file. To download your query results to PowerPivot, see Download from the Marketplace to PowerPivot.


Before you proceed, you must have:

  • A valid Microsoft ID or Org ID.
    If you need a Microsoft ID go to the Windows Live home page and sign-up for an ID.

  • A valid Marketplace account. If you do not have a Marketplace account, go to Create Your Marketplace Account and follow the instructions there.

  • A subscription to a dataset of interest. If you have not subscribed to a dataset, go to Subscribe to a Data Offer and follow the instructions there.

  • A dataset that you have queried using Service Explorer. (See Query a Dataset for more information.)

Downloading your query result set to Excel or a CSV file

After you query a dataset using Service Explorer (See Query a Dataset for more information.), your download options are listed in the upper right of the results screen. (Figure 1)

  3. After the download completes, select Open, Save or Cancel.

    • Open – launches Excel and populates a worksheet with the query results.

    • Save – saves the query results as a .CSV file.
      If you click the down arrow on Save, then select Save As, you can specify where to save the .CSV file.

    • Cancel – terminates the process.
      However, since the download has already taken place you have consumed the specified number of transactions.
