CSV Options

The configuration options for CSV are listed below.

Use Quotes

The Use Quotes options allows you to configure when quotes are added to the values:

  • when checked, then every value in the CSV file will be wrapped with quotes
  • when unchecked, the only values containing quotes or commas will be wrapped with quotes

Use Header

Use Header configures if the row header will be added to the first line of the CSV file or not.

Quote Char

The Quote Char option configures the quote character to use.

By default this will be " but some tools may prefer ', and if so you can reconfigure the output.

Escape Char

The Escape Char option configures the character that will be used in front of the Quote Char when the Quote Char is present in the value.

Most of the time this will be the same as the Quote Char itself, but you may need to configure it to \ or some other value for other tools.
