Create a header in a CSV file

Create a header in a CSV file

Create a header in a CSV file

In CW 6.3 I successfully write the data records to a csv file. I need to create a header and footer in the CSV file. Is there an example somewhere?

RE: Create a header in a CSV file

I have a legacy C6.1 app and allow the user to optionally create a CSV header using this code....
! Start of "Beginning of Procedure, After Opening Files"
! [Priority 3500]

!Create Header

CASE MESSAGE('Add a file header record?','Header?',icon:question,'&Yes|&No',1,0)
OF 1
MH_Exp:Record = |
'"Receipt_No",' & |
'"Date",' & |
'"Time",' & |
'"Member_No",' & |
'"Type",' & |
'"Name",' & |
'"Description",' & |
'"Cash_Cheque",' & |
OF 2
!Skip header
