An export is always based on the view except if you export in CSV (or the other option next to it) which is the export of the "criteria tab".
So what kind of export are you doing? What format did you pick?

Thank you Gianni. I have been using the CSV export because we have been receiving the Excel export error that we are in the process of fixing. I found a resolution to that error in the forums here:
I will switch back to exporting to Excel.
