export data (create export action) with data separator as pipe delimited

Hi Experts,

I got a requirement to export data as .csv with data separator as pipe (|) delimited.

Please help me how to create an export action in Anaplan as data separator as pipe delimited.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Anil

    To my knowledge I don't think that there is way to tweak the formatting of export files in Anaplan. However if you need the data in pipe format, then you could add one more column/line item in the export module and place all the data in this line item. Finally export this line item as csv.

    Hope that helps,

  • Hi @anildudam 

     

    You cannot export in that way as there is no option for delimiter during export in anaplan like @Misbah mentioned. However, you can use SUBSTITUE logic to replace Spaces with Pipes in another line item and export it.

     

    Edit: Replace Spaces with Pipes, Not Pipes with spaces

    Can you show the export type you need. because when we say delimiter for CSV it is always "," because it is the format in Excel and after each comma it assigns to new cell.

     

    Thanks

  • Hi Manjunath,

    Let me try this option and will revert back once able to do it.
