    When I go to the page you linked I get this error:
    Uncaught SyntaxError: Invalid or unexpected token (index):218

    That will keep the button from working since your JS stopped executing.

    You should take this up with the author of the example you linked to,
    tableExport.js is not provided by DataTables, which has its own "Buttons" module to handle exports.
