How to Customize the Separator Character When Exporting QlikView Objects to CSV Files


How to Customize the Separator Character When Exporting QlikView Objects to CSV Files

This tutorial is an addendum to the tutorial, How to Export QlikView Objects to CSV Files, as that tutorial was published before the release of version 12.4 and this feature has been added in NPrinting version 12.4. We recommend that you read and, better yet, carry out that tutorial first. The default separator character for NPrinting is the semicolon, but you may desire to use something different. Here is how to define a different character as the separator for the CSV files you generate.


Open Reports Page


Open the Export a QlikView Object to a CSV File Report Task


Open Format Properties: Separator Dialog


Click on the browse button at the extreme right of the Advanced column for the CSV files you want to generate.


Open Separating Character Drop-Down Menu

  1. Click on the cell containing "Semicolon" to open the menu
  2. You can select a predefined character or, as in this tutorial, Other

Enter Custom Character

  1. Enter the character you want to use as the separator
  2. Click on the OK button

Save and Close, and Run Task


Click on Save and Close

Run the task


Open and Inspect Output File C:\NPrintingTraining\Output\CH184.csv


Jump for Joy.
