Store during script run a table to txt file using ansi encoding

Hi

for my customer I need to create txt file  with ansi encoding  during script run .    ,

( it is possible to store to UTF-8  using STORE command )

the reason why I need during script run is that    I  manipulate the data to several tables and need different data to store  .

the use on txt file , is to move data from  one  system to another .

enclosed   a qvw sample document   .

I some can add the right script line  to make it happen .

I know it is possible  but I could not make it happen

thanks for the help

It's not possible directly with Qlik. You will need some third-party tools maybe a sophisticated editor or any batch-routine. I think this will be helpful in this way:

Or with some command line magic: https://www.dostips.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3922#p21364

Note that in text strings you may lose some information. Converting Unicode to an ANSI codepage isn't always lossless
