Well, i was thinking of adding a "export as" feature there for this Feature
that will take a name and thus generated sql file will have that exported
database name.
But i guess renaming it is better option.

We have hierarchy in this fashion

Now when we have to export a table, we click on export and we expect that
there will
be a CREATE TABLE statement and INSERT statement

But when we have to export a server there are just CREATE TABLE statements

So, in case the user wants to export a DB named test and his target machine
has no test.
In this case he would like sql file to have CREATE DATABASE test followed
by tables

To achieve this he will have to go to :

server level -> click on export->select custom->select test-> export->Go

If we add one CREATE DATABASE IF NOT EXISTS at database export level, then
his steps would be
Select test->export->Go
>From the user point of view, i guess, this will be much more preferred as
it has less number
of steps.
