Hello Lisa.  It is not possible, to the best of my knowledge, to export notes.  Mainly because it is a relational database. 

 

Depending on what you really want to accomplish, here's a possible work around.  This would only be applicable for a single contact from which you want their notes, and if they have a lot of notes, it may be more trouble than it is worth.  I believe there are some add-in products that can do this, though.

  1. Print the Notes/History report and uncheck the history boxes. 
  2. Save it as a PDF
  3. Open the PDF and highlight the notes and select to save it in a spreadsheet

This would not be a solution for a lot of contacts nor a contact that has a lot of pages as you have to deal with page breaks.
