Exporting with value lists??


I'm currently trying to export into excel, and I'm having trouble with my value lists. I have set up value lists in filemaker such as gender "0 = male, 1 = female" and race "0 = caucasian, 1 = hispanic" etc.  For some reason these value lists are not all equal though, because when I try to export into excel, the gender value list will export appropriately as 1's and 0's, but the race values will export as "0 = caucasian", rather than just 0. I cannot find ANY differences between how I set up these two value lists, and I'm not sure why they export differently. 

 Any help would be appreciated - Thank you!
