Full path of the folder containing the exported files from the data dictionary, specified as a string scalar or a character vector.

Exported files contained in exportedFolder include ARXML files, which are named dictionaryname_datatypes.arxml and dictionaryname_interfaces.arxml, where dictionaryname is the name of the data dictionary, and a stub folder containing RTE header files. If the files already exist, exportDictionary overwrites them.
