How to save full time response probe data from transient thermal simulations

I have a simple transient thermal simulation (simple BC's, somewhat complex geometry) running in SW 2014.  I know how to probe individual mesh nodes or along specific feature to see, plot, or save to .csv file the temperature data at any step in the simulation.  I can also generate a "response" plot of one or more probes over all the transient steps to see how the temperature evolves over time.  My question is how does one save that response data to a file for use in excel or matlab or other software?  Clicking the save report icon only saves the probe data at the current step, not over all entire simulation study.

 

Do "sensors" provide any better functionality (besides just controlling the location where data is collected)?  I'm trying to find a way to extract the time vs. temperature data for a probe location from SW.  It's obviously stored in there somewhere.

 

Thanks,

-Brian
