You're trying to use EXPORT, not Sync. They are two different buttons

If you haven't done so, read the NCU manual. If you don't have it, see if
it's on the Manuals section of the Support Area of Apple's web site in
Acrobat (PDF) format. It may also have been provided with NCU (I have it
in my folder as "NCU Manual.pdf" but I could have added or renamed it in
