The Ctrl+E (Export) button is provided only in reports related to statutory returns (VAT triangulation report), to export data to relevant electronic format templates provided by the respective departments. The buttons Ctrl+E: e-Returns and Ctrl+E: e-Annexures are provided for the export of statutory returns, depending on the screen in which the button appears.
The Ctrl+E export option does not allow you to change the format. The format in which the statutory return details are to be exported is selected by default as shown below:

Note: In the some states the option Alt+E (Export) can be used to export the annexures in required formats. This behaviour will be supported only until all states start providing pre-defined templates for export of annexure details.
