You will then be asked which dates and types of events you want to export. The date range options are pretty self explanatory. "All dates" includes every event in the Data File. "From today onwards" includes all the events after and including the date you're exporting on. And "Selected dates" makes two drop down calendars appear allowing you to pick your own date range.

You can also choose which type of events you want to export e.g. only Weekly, Monthly etc. If you want everything to be included, make sure all the boxes are ticked. When you're finished, click "Next".
