Fixed Width Text Write

Fixed-width text files can be created from data which is exported from database files.  Additionally, fixed-width text files can be created from data which is translated from other file formats including Excel, delimited text and XML.
 
GoAnywhere Director can create fixed-width text files using a variety of user-specified options:
  • Include/exclude column headings
  • Field starting positions and lengths
  • Record delimiters (CR, LF, CR/LF, LF/CR)
  • Formatting options for dates and numbers
  • Alignment and padding options
  • Null substitute values
  • Append to the end of existing text files
  • Replace existing text files
  • Pass in variables (at runtime) to override attributes
After a fixed-width text file is generated, GoAnywhere Director can then compress or encrypt the text file and store it on the file system or distribute the file to a FTP server, HTTP server or email addresses.
