Export to CSV jobs gets kicked off when trying to export more than 500 records. If Picklist columns are included in the fields and then exported, the Export to CSV job fails. 

Steps to Reproduce: 

  1. Navigate to Modern UX 
  2. Click on any object which has more than 500 instances of records. In this case, instances under any Custom Investment 
  3. Create a new picklist - Color 
  4. From the flyout menu, search for Color and check the box to add it to the display fields 
  5. Make sure there are more than 500 records to download 
  6. Click on the 'Export to CSV' icon on the top left 

Expected Results: The export completes successfully and can be downloaded from the Notifications on the top right corner. 

Actual Results: The notification shows the error - Could not export CSV. Under Reports and Jobs - Job log, the Export to CSV Job job would have failed. 

BG logs will have the below error
