  • Exporting data to text file using template

    Hello,

    I am trying to export data from our shipping system into a text file. In order to do so the software forces you to use a template. The sample template is a simple text file with fields like this

    <CUSTOMER>,<TRACK_NO>,<WEIGHT>,<ZIP>

    I created one with the fields that I want, and I am able to export the data that I need. Problem is it comes over in a big mess. I would like the line to be as long as the fields, then go to the next line. example....

    Mr. Jones 123456789 15 03102
    Mr. Mike 123456788 12 90210

    I tried <BR>, </P> </> nothing makes the line end. What is the tag to force a new line?

    The best answer should be rechive from the shipping system support staff.
    btw..

    Why not to use CSV files etc?!

      Great question, For some reason the shipping software only allows you to use a .txt file as a template. It is stupid, but I figured I could export to text file, then import into excel, but I can't get it to export into columns, or just break the line at a specific point. I will have to contact the vendor, I just thought someone here might know what command or tag would do that.
