Question: format usb as exfat

Hi -


Trying to format a new 32gb USB stick into exFAT. The directions tell me to select the partition button. But it is not selectable. It is selectable if I want to partition my onboard memory (macBook Air).


Any ideas?

MacBook Air (13-inch Mid 2012), macOS High Sierra (10.13.1)
