CSVSTORE

This function will store the values of a two dimensional array into a CSV file on the file system. Each element within the array is treated as a single value within the CSV file.
Format
CSVSTORE(SRC$, FILENAME$)
CSVSTORE(SRC$, FILENAME$, DELIM$)
Parameters
  • SRC$
    = two dimensional array of strings to be written to a CSV file.
  • FILENAME$
    = name of the file to store the array contents. Drive location and file name must be in quotation marks. The file extension must be either ".
    CSV
    " or ".
    TXT
    ".
  • DELIM$
    = optional delimiter that is used in the CSV file instead of a comma. If DELIM$ is not provided a comma will be used by default. The delimiter must be a single character that is not a quote, carriage return, or newline.
Returns
A 0 if there were no errors. A 1 is returned if
SRC$
is not a string array, if the file could not be written, or if
SRC$
contains errors that prevent the file from being stored.
Example
This example shows how to convert a comma delimited CSV file into a "^" delimited TXT file and print the contents.
10 DECLARE STRING CSVDB$(1,2) 20 LET NUMOFCOLS = CSVLOAD(CSVDB$, "E:RECORDS.CSV") 30 LET CSVERROR = CSVSTORE(CSVDB$, "E:NEWREC.TXT", "^") 40 LET NUMOFCOLS = CSVLOAD(CSVDB$, "E:NEWREC.TXT", "^") 50 LET NUMOFROWS = ROWSIZE(CSVDB$) 100 FOR I = 1 TO NUMOFROWS STEP 1 110 FOR J = 1 TO NUMOFCOLS STEP 1 120 PRINT CSVDB$(I, J), " "; 200 NEXT J 210 PRINT "" 300 NEXT I
Comments
The elements of the array should follow the rules in IETF RFC 4180: http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4180
There is no limit on the number of columns per row when storing to a CSV file. However, a file stored with rows that exceed the column limit imposed by
CSVLOAD
will not be loaded by the
CSVLOAD
function.
