Develop your program so that when the user chooses to export the data:

a) They are asked to enter a suitable filename

b) The program should check whether a file of the same name already exists.

c) If the file does not already exist, then the data are saved.

d) If the file does already exist, the user should be asked whether they want to overwrite

the existing file.

e) If they choose to overwrite the existing file, then the data are saved.
