CSE User's Manual

EXPORTFILE allows optional specification of different or additional files to receive CSE EXPORTs.

EXPORTs contain the same information as reports, but formatted for reading by other programs rather than by people. By default, CSE generates no exports. Exports are specified via the EXPORT object, described in Section 5.28 (next). As for REPORTs, CSE automatically supplies a primary export file; it has the same name and path as the input file, and extension .csv.

Input for EXPORTFILEs and EXPORTs is similar to that for REPORTFILEs and REPORTs, except that there is no page formatting. Refer to their preceding descriptions (Sections 5.24 and 5.25) for more additional discussion.

What CSE should do if file xfFileName already exists:

OVERWRITEOverwrite pre-existing file.
NEWIssue error message if file exists.
APPENDAppend new output to present contents of existing file.

If the specified file does not exist, it is created and xfFileStat has no effect.
