[CLOSED] How can I insert newline characters for csv files.
Hello everybody.

I will appreciate you if you can help with this problem:
I am trying to output my data to a csv file.
and I want to manually insert a newline(or enter?sorry my english is poor) character,and I tried a lot :

BY CATE1 AS 'CATE1","shot",CRLF,"","","","","","","","","'

see that I succeeded in output blank columns but however I can't insert a newline though I replaced the 'CRLF' with '\r\n' and anything possible else.

Please Help me !!!...

and forgive my poor english.

Why do you want to put a CR in yopur CSV file ?

Is this to be added to a title ?

Can you post the whole TABLE request?

Because the report I want to create contains headers and I found that the header will not be outputed in csv format,so I wanted to insert header by editing the titles.

And this is my whole request,you can ignore the japanese...

If you want to create a csv file with a header row use format COMT or DFIX

In my 7.7.01 setup format COMT provides column headers, but only on one line and format DFIX does not even give me that.
If you want a complete report with headers, footers and column titles and such, try holding it format WP. That way you still have a columnar hold file, but with all headers and such present. Mind you, no master file will be created, but if you need that you could probably create one yourself.

Gamp for DFIX

ON TABLE HOLD FORMAT DFIX HEADER YES

Generates the header row

But you are correct using FORMAT WP is the only way you will get a multi-line header
FILEDEF MYFILE DISK MYFILE.CSV
-RUN
DEFINE FILE CAR
HLINE1/A50='"分類名1","shot"';
HLINE2/A50='"","","","","","","","",""';
END
TABLE FILE CAR
"<HLINE1"
"<HLINE2"
BY COUNTRY NOPRINT
ON TABLE SET PAGE NOLEAD
ON TABLE HOLD AS MYFILE FORMAT WP NOCC
END
-RUN
FILEDEF MYFILE DISK MYFILE.CSV (APPEND
-RUN
TABLE FILE CAR
PRINT COUNTRY MODEL
ON TABLE SAVE AS MYFILE FORMAT COM
END
-RUN
