Exporting a DataGrid to a CSV File

Along the same lines as my posts on exporting a SalesLogix DataGrid (well, exporting the Recordset behind the grid) to Excel, Michael Cessna from SalesLogix shared this quick bit of code for dumping a Recordset to a CSV file (posted in the SalesLogix Business Partner newsgroups)

Option Explicit

Const adClipString = 2

' ExportRecordsetToCSV objRS, "C:\Test.csv", True, True
Sub ExportRecordsetToCSV(Recordset, FileName, IncludeFieldNames, MoveFirst)

    Dim objFSO
    Dim objFile
    Dim iFieldCount
    Dim oFields()
    Dim strHeader

    Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    Set objFile = objFSO.CreateTextFile(FileName, True)

    If MoveFirst Then
    End If

    If IncludeFieldNames Then
       Redim oFields(Recordset.Fields.Count)
       For iFieldCount = 0 To Recordset.Fields.Count -1
           oFields(iFieldCount) = Recordset.Fields(iFieldCount).Name
       strHeader = Join(oFields, Chr(9))
    End If


    Set objFile = Nothing
    Set objFSO = Nothing

    If MoveFirst Then
    End If
End Sub

I'm rather new to SLX development but I've noticed that in a lot of vendor code and in a great many samples developers don't type their variables (as with above) - why is that???

Hi Clancy,

Because SLX uses VBScript, not VB. In VBScript you cannot type your variables (You'll get an error if you do).

Doh! I knew that. I guess my mind just gets tripped up moving back and forth between legecy and VB Script..
