CSV Export to named file



The export file is named using the date which makes it difficult for other processes to pick it up. Can I specify the file name of the CSV file that csvexport produces?

Hi Jonathan,

This is not possible as CSVExport can produce more than one file in a single run. But you can run CSVExport in a batch file and rename the output files.

@echo off
CSVExport.exe -pu=demo -pp=demodemo -ps=https://example.com -s=1001,1002
ren 1001*.csv myfile.csv
ren 1002*.csv myfile2.csv
