Re: exporting passwords to excel from norton password manager

Hello. The export data can ONLY be exported into two file formats, .dat or plain text .csv. Please follow these steps. You MAY be able to convert and print the .dat file using MS Word to convert.

You need to use the .CSV file to convert to an Excel file. The .DAT files are encrypted and would only give you gibberish.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.

Keep in mind the following:

You can select one of the following:

  • Password Manager Backup Format - DAT File

    If you want to back up your data with a password for more security, type and confirm the password.

  • Plain Text - CSV file (Logins & Notes only)

Cheers

Re: exporting passwords to excel from norton password manager

Thanks for all suggestions.

The latest verson of Password Manager only permist export to a webpage in CSV format. That page is then saved as a webpage unless the fille type is set to text.  The format is .CSV which means it can be loaded into Excel as a text file and then converted to Excel.

The only MAJOR problem I had was that I had been using commas as part of several passwords resulting in Excel treating them not as part of the password but as a column indicator.

I will be updating my passwords so as to exclude commas.
