4) Your column headings will have pulled through, if you need to alter the field names you can do so under the Target column.  Select the Type of each field.  Most fields can be set to Data.  You will need to set the field that contains the phone number or ID you want to send to as one of the ID types e.g. if you are sending SMS set the field that contains the mobile number to type = Phone Number.  Click Generate Preview.

The field that you tag as CustomerID will appear in your data export.
