How generate txt files with the function peek for the filename ?

Hello,

I want to generate text files delimited by tabulations based upon a table in a QV application.

This Table contains over 6000 rows, but into these rows there are only 6 departments, I would like generate one file per department.

The name of the file will be the department name ('Department'_Actuals.txt) and I don't want export the labels into the files.

To do that, I load my table like this :

ForfaitsTmp:

CrossTable (Mois,Montant)

LOAD

Type & '|' & CodeClient & '|' & Media & '|' & Dépt & '|' & Fichier as key,

FROM '$(vQVDPath)\$(vProjet)\forfait.xls'

(biff, embedded labels, table is Sheet1$);

Forfaits:

Load SubField(key,'|',1) as Type,

    SubField(key,'|',2) as CodeClient,

    SubField(key,'|',3) as Media,

    SubField(key,'|',4) as Dépt,

    SubField(key,'|',5) as Fichier,

    Mois, num(Montant,'# ##0.00000')

RESIDENT ForfaitsTmp;

STORE Forfaits INTO '$(vQVDPath)\$(vProjet)\'Department name'_Actuals.txt' (delimiter is '\t');

I'm not quite good in scripting, can somebody help me pls ?

Thanks,

You could by crosstable-load the number of columns specify which will be loaded normally and you didn't need to create this key and split it then again. Try therefore the following:

ForfaitsTmp:

CrossTable (Mois,Montant, 5)

LOAD * FROM [$(vQVDPath)\$(vProjet)\forfait.xls] (biff, embedded labels, table is Sheet1$);

for i = 1 to fieldvaluecount('Dept')

     let vTable = fieldvalue('Dept', $(i))

     $(vTable):

     Load Type, CodeClient, Media, Dept, Fichier, Mois, num(Montant,'# ##0.00000') as Montant

     Resident ForfaitsTmp;

     store $(vTable) into [$(vQVDPath)\$(vProjet)\ $(vTable)_Actuals.txt] (txt, no labels, delimiter is '\t');

next

The store-statement to text is limited and I'm not sure if it's considered the additionally entries with labels and delimiter but in general it should work.
