How to export data from a sense table to a custom folder?

In my app, I need to export the content of a table to a special directory, where another application will pick the file and load it for further processing. This shall be as automized as possible. Today, we have to use the export to Excel, then open the file, save it as CSV and store it in the correct location manually.

  • Format shall be ideally csv with a delimiter like '|' , but even excel would not be a showstopper.
  • Location shall be ideally a shared drive that can be reached from the client PC where the App is run.
  • The trigger for export shall be a button, but I am open for other options, too 🙂

 

Thanks a lot for any idea.

Thanks for the hint. But currently NPrinting is not an option. I know from NPGeomaps that it is possible to create an export dialog in a way to choose the path... so there should be a way. Maybe te´here is already some "Export-Extension"?

Meanwhile, I found the great little extension from Stefan Walther:

It is a big step forward but still lacks the custom directory.
