This article explains how to complete an export of your corporate card transactions using the TravelBank platform.


This article applies to all TravelBank customers with a corporate card.


A transaction export includes only corporate card transactions, so you can use a transaction export to help you reconcile your corporate card statement. In contrast, an expense export includes all of your corporate card and personal/out of pocket expenses. Review the “Configure the columns for the export” section of this article to see what information is unique to transaction exports.

Complete a transaction export (TravelBank web app)

To complete a transaction export, take the following steps:

  1. Open the TravelBank web app at

  2. From the TravelBank left navigation menu, select “Manage” > “Transactions”.

  3. Select “Export” in the top-right corner of the page (see Figure 1). (Note: If you have applied filters on this page, the filters will be in effect for the transaction export.) This brings up an Export Transactions page where you can specify what data you want to export.

  4. Use the available filters to refine the data you want to export.

  5. Use the Column Configurations section to further refine the information you want to include about each transaction in your export.

  6. Once you’ve set up your transaction data for your export, complete the export by selecting “Export CSV” at the bottom of the page. This automatically downloads your export. (Note: If there are no transactions that meet the filters you set for the export, an error message appears. Reset your filters to include a wider range of transactions, and try your export again.)

Add filters for the export

In the Filters section, you can refine the data you want to export. If you applied filters on the Manage > Transactions page, those filters show up in the Filters section.

To add a filter, select an option from the filter’s dropdown options (see Figure 2).

To remove a filter, or unselect a filter option, select the X to the right of the option after you’ve selected it (see Figure 3).

The following filters are available to customize your transaction export.

  • Transaction status (required): Select Posted or Declined

  • Date range (required): Select the date range for the transactions you want to export. (Only transactions posted in the past three years are available for exporting. If you need older transactions, reach out to TravelBank support.)

  • Department

  • Managing account

Configure the columns for the export

In the Column Configurations section, you can set how your filtered data appears in your export. You can rearrange the columns, as well as rename them so they display how you want them to in your export. Custom transaction fields are also available to be included in the export.

To include a column, check the column’s checkbox (see Figure 4).

Frequently Asked Questions

Why am I receiving an “Export failed unexpectedly” error message?

You may be receiving this error message if the date range selected for the export does not contain any transactions. Try selecting a different date range and try the export again.

If I make modifications to the column configurations, will I have to reorder them every time I export transactions?

No, after a successful transaction export, the modifications you make will remain intact.

Why didn't I receive my transaction export?

Your completed export appears in your downloads folder. If the export is not there, you may need to turn off your pop-up blocker and try the export again.

In what format will my transaction export be?

Transaction exports are downloaded in .csv format.

Why don't I see the custom fields I created on my transaction export?

You may not have selected that field in the Column Configurations section. Under Column Configurations, double check that the box is checked for the field you are looking for in your transaction export.
