How to create csv filesEach DataStream in a report can generate a csv file from its query. These are the steps required to generate and use a csv file.
1. In the definition of the DataStream, use csv=yes.
<DataStream name=dsname ... csv=yes >
2. When you run the report, pass several additional parameters:
do_csv=t3. To add a link to your report which connects to the csv file, use the predefined variable named the same as your datastream. For example, if your datastream name is deptemp, use:
<A HREF=:deptemp:>CSV file</A>

CSV File namesThe csv files are named:
Each report run creates a new file. There is no automatic utility for removing obsolete csv files, however, it is recommended that a cron job be created to removed these files if they are older that a few hours up to a day.
