Exporting data from WDI (World Development Indicators) goes often wrong: depending on the settings of Internet Explorer you can’t export data and even when you can the data in the Excel-sheet differs from the figures on the screen. Try for example inflation: on the screen it’s 2,4 but in Excel it’s 242.818.089.095.829.
I was searching for a solution, and found one: using WDI from the website of the World Bank gives better information, at least in Excel. The link is: http://databank.worldbank.org/ddp/home.do?Step=12&id=4&CNO=2
The interface looks the same, except for the last page, where you can format the report, but there is an button Export.
When someone needs more than 9 digits behind the comma, it’s better to use WDI from the list of databases. Maybe it’s better to change the link in this list of databases?
