Which WP’s database tables can I export in Excel?

For the moment only these ones: posts (with/without meta), users (with/without meta), links, comments. Other tables in future releases.

Why did you make this plugin when we can use tools like phpMyAdmin?

Because some customers are not so familiar with phpMyAdmin, queries… and they prefer using an easy tool in backend.

Why did I get an error message?

Maybe you have to set up the exportation’s target directory. The default target directory works for *nix systems, but not for Windows ones. So, go to Settings > Alo Export Xls, read the security disclaimer and choose a right path.

When the next release with the X feature?

Due to more relevant commitments this plugin will not be further developed.
