Hi,

When I export the csv file from AHTML report, the csv downloaded file is in unformat and without heading.

Can we able to download the file with heading and formatted one.

Please let me know.

Thanks in Advance.

Hi Madhu,

One of the reasons it is suggested that members include their version of WebFOCUS in their signature is so that they don't have to remember to add it to their post.

Hence, we have no idea of the version to which you refer!

I am using 8.2.04 for my test and I get a file with headers from the following code. I click on a column title expand the Export menu item and choose CSV format.
TABLE FILE CAR
SUM RCOST DCOST BY COUNTRY BY CAR BY MODEL
ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT AHTML
END
-RUN

So your Report1_1.fex is the controlling extract process then and not the standard AHTML export.

You ought to have mentioned that first as it changes the response.

Look at the help files for the use of FORMAT DFIX as that will give you greater control than FORMAT COMT etc.

Your signature still isn't showing.

Formatting is impossible for any CSV file as it is just a text file.

I would open a case and ask IBI how that would be done in AHTML.
