I believe the Web Design Studio allows its users to save the execution result only as trace is the expected behaviour at the moment.
In this scenario, where I need to export the results of the query, I would perform the following steps in the Virtual DataPort Administration Tool :
* Execute VQL statements in the Virtual DataPort Administration tool, and the execution results can be viewed in the output tab present in the bottom pane.
* Then click on Save option, which exports the trace, image and results in CSV format.
You can refer to the [Using the VQL Shell](https://community.denodo.com/docs/html/browse/8.0/en/vdp/administration/starting_virtual_dataport/launching_the_administration_tool/using_the_vql_shell#using-the-vql-shell) section under Virtual DataPort Administration Guide for more information.
Hope this helps !
