Generate a CSV file without the headers

Generate a CSV file without the headers

Generate a CSV file without the headers

Hello everyone,

I am using PB 11.2.
I have a grid datawindow. I would like to generate a CSV file from the dw.
With ';' as separator for columns but without the heading of the columns.

I know that the SaveAs enables me not to have the headings, but I cannot choose the separator.
On the other hand, the SaveAsFormattedText (or SaveAsAscii) lets me choose the separator, but then I have the columns headings.

Do you have any idea to help me to find a solution?

Thank you in advance of your assistance

RE: Generate a CSV file without the headers

Save the file using SaveAsAscii.  Then open the file using FileOpen with the filemode parameter LineMode! (the default).  Use a loop (something like DO WHILE FileReadEx(filenumber, ls_line) > 0)
then write all but the first line to another file.

Thanks Matt,

This is exactly what I have finally done, and it is working fine.
It is so fast that the user does not see that process.

Thank you for your answer !!!
