csv payload

I am studying a .ala PCIe trace in version 6.30.1011 of the Keysight Logic and Protocol Analyzer software.  Whenever I export the protocol viewer data to a CSV file (I use the 'CSV' toolbar button located in the protocol viewer), the payload field in the CSV file is always truncated to 60 bytes.


I have a strong need to write the entire payload to the CSV file.  How do I override the 60-byte limit?


On a related matter, I'm having difficulty figuring out how to search the contents of the payload field, either whole or in part.  Mostly right now I need to search the payload fields for the existence of a particular substring, of which I don't necessarily know the offset within the payload.


If I can't search the payload field as described then I'll absolutely need to export the entire payload.  Or I'll have to try writing a utility to read the .ala myself, if allowed.  Is there any documentation available on the format of the .ala file?

Again, I'm looking at a PCIe trace.
