Set standard parameters in outputfile (.csv)


Hello reader,


I need to output a lot of .csv files. The standard delimiters is "," and the standard code page is "ISO 8859-1 Latin I". How do I set different standard parameters?

Hi @Stefan88,


When you select a csv file to output to, you can see all the configurable options in the configuration screen:

Yes I know; but the standard settings are not the settings I want to use. I need to output a lot of .csv files with a different setting (delimiter "{" and code page "unicode UTF-8"). It would save time if I could adjust the default settings in Alteryx.

@Stefan88, I'd suggest creating a macro that outputs your files using the formats you require...something like this:
