CR2016 How to export csv in Unix text format

Apr 12 at 07:44 PM

Currently when creating a csv export, it is in a windows format which includes a Line Feed and Carriage return ASCII characters ( Unix uses only a line feed)

Unix programs may display the carriage returns in Windows text files with Ctrl-m (^M) characters at the end of each line.

Is there any way to set the Crystal csv export format to unix ? I'm trying to get the ^M off the end of the line w/o using another product / solution.

10 |10000 characters needed characters left characters exceeded

Crystal Server environment is running on Windows...

it is very easy to remove those Cntr-m characters in unix, for example see KBA 1681036 that shows one method.
If you google how to remove ^M in unix - there will be many links showing the process.

Many after the fact processes, yes - I was just hoping it wouldn't be created at all by my windows crystal setup...


ususally those characters are added after the file is openned/saved on windows.
