I tried that several times and it didn't work
I must admit that I don't see the logic behind it - just reporting what somebody else has found. Exporting works fine here, FWIW. One of the things we've noticed lately is that Microsoft's 'upgrades' have had, with some machines but not others, undesirable side effects. A classic case is the disappearance of one of the .dll files, that now has to be replaced manually. Even though everybody's done the same 'upgrade' this affects some people but not others - for no apparent reason at all.
