Sorry if someone has already brought this up, but I'm something of a tech geek and would like to be able to export and save my report data, perhaps in .csv or .xls format so I can create graphs and make projections, etc. For now, I can simply save individual daily diaries as .pdf's and using OCR (I just love acronyms...can you tell I work for the government?) I can copy-paste into excel to a tabular format. But I wish I didn't have to jump through these hoops.
Any chance of this capability being added somehow?

I actually would LOVE this feature.

I really want this feature too. I want to be able to see if there are any correlations between the data.

When I go into the DATA BASE it would be nice to be able to add it to my diary at that time instead of having to look it up a second time in order to add it.

im looking for the exact same thing right now...
when i go into the "reports" i kinda expected there to be some way to export the data.... i also was going to stick it in excel... mostly i wanted to calculate my average "real" calories, etc.... you know... play with the numbers at work.

You can copy and paste directly from the diary into Excel, you know, there's really no need for pdfs and OCR. Then you just have to remove the extraneous rows. Still, it would be great if they would let us export it directly.

That's what I do too, copy and paste into Excel. I don't mess with the data, but can manipulate the table so it is more compact and uses less paper when I print it out.

Wish it also figured weekly averages, but I can do that in Excel, just takes time.

Well I got bored at work yesterday and wrote a program to do it for me.
Its free for anyone to use, but i make no guarantee to it working. All the reports dont seem to work yet either. Its not associated in anyway with MyFitnessPal...etc...

http://fastgm.com/travis/MyFitnessPalDataScraper/publish.htm

its fairly basic. you select the "report" you want.. and it calls the website report XML the same way the report tool calls it.
You MUST be logged in with Internet Explorer for it to work. If you're not (because you use firefox, chrome, etc) it will bring up a internal browser you can login with.

its not perfect, i dont think the weight works yet, but i only have about 20mins into the whole program. Its a ClickOnce so if i ever publish a update/bugfix, you will get it.

I have to thank user drorex6.... he posted a link to the XML and that got me started on doing it... once more this uses the report XML, not the "printed report" so if you want everything, you will have to do it one at a time and copy.... i may add more to it later that includes all of the stuff thats on the "printed report" in a excel friendly manner.

once more.. i have about 20mins into it... and its unsupported.. so it may have minor issues, but it works for me.
