Table of Contents
EXPORT AS PLAIN TEXT
Category: Export / File
Export the contents of a column into a text file, as is. Each column value is exported as text into one line of the file.
Most frequently, this action is used to create text files in a format not natively supported by EasyMorph.
|Column||Select the column to export into the target text file.|
|File*||Enter a fully-qualified file name for the output file (includes relative or absolute path).|
|Encoding||Select the encoding format to use for the exported file. If you're not sure what to choose, try UTF-8
as it's the most common Unicode encoding.
|Don't write BOM||When checked, the byte order mark is not written at the beginning of the output file.|
|Decimal||Select the character used within numeric values to define decimal places. Options: Point or Comma.|
|Export the column header too||When checked, the column name will be exported as the 1st line of the target file.|
|Preserve formatting|| If checked, and the exported column has a format specified (e.g. for dates), use the format
when exporting numbers.
|File already exists||If a file with the same name already exists, choose whether to overwrite the existing file, rename the
existing file, or halt the action's execution. See the "File already exists options" table below for details.
* Setting can be specified using a parameter.

|Overwrite||The new file replaces the original file.|
|Rename||The original file will be renamed with "backup" and a serial number appended to the file name. The new file will
possess the name specified in the File setting.
|Halt project execution||The project will stop processing and this action will display a warning symbol.|
