To save the data of the report as a pipe-delimited file i.e. where the data columns are separated by “pipes”

Lookup DFIX in the manual or code it with FORMAT ALPHA

Here's an example of creating a hold file from the CAR table using the DFIX format. The first several lines are comments explaining different options. This example creates the hold file, lists the files in the temp directory, then types out the files that are automatically created from the hold command. (this is an example for windows users) ...

-*
-*ON TABLE HOLD FORMAT ...
-*DFIX DELIMITER delim [ENCLOSURE enclose] [HEADER header] [PRESERVESPACE spaces]..delimited file
-*delim: TAB .... to create tab-delimited data
-*delim: characters .... up to 30 characters as delimiters
-*delim: hex-value .... value for non-printable characters
-*enclose: character .... up to four printable characters to enclose the data
-*enclose: '''' .... four single quotes produces a single quote
-*header: NO .... [default] no title line is included
-*header: YES .... a title line with fieldnames is included
-*spaces: NO .... [default] leading and trailing blank spaces are removed from output
-*spaces: YES .... leading and trailing blank spaces are left in output
-*The spaces option was added in 7.7.04
-*From the WebFOCUS Keysheet, around page 59.
