Chris,

They can also create reports that can help you export things in a specific
way, Robb has created a number of these for us here at our gallery.  I think
he's your best bet. Email: embarksupport at GALLERYSYSTEMS.COM or call (510)
652-8950 x233

He has an assistant as well that you may be able to get in touch with while
he is on vacation.

Good luck,

Jessie Gillan
