Exporting to a Tab delimited file.

Post Author: John

CA Forum: Exporting

I'm having a problem with my first line (only in the first column) being 1 space over to the left. This causes the whole file to not be read by my Access database (except the first line). My file is coming from CR. Any suggestions?

Here's an example.

"A11111111111" "234234234" "Steve" "23412342"

"A22222222222" "234523452" "Bob" "32452345"

"A33333333333" "234234234" "Susan" "23423423"

On the above example, if you went into the file and pressed the space bar in front of the first line... only once, everything is in alignment. Column 1, row 1 is the only one that is off.

Thanks!

    Are all the lines coming from the same detail or group section ?, are you on CR XI or ?? what happens if you try exporting as CSV ?

    I'm running Crystal 9. Everything is processed in the detail section.

    Using CRD to schedule and execute the report. The output "looks" fine in CR9.. but.. doesn't come out correct from CRD.

    Will try and execute it to run to a .csv file.

    Thanks!

    Yep.. CSV fixed it. Was trying to use the tab delimited .txt file because I'm linking it into an Access table.

    Thanks!
