PP7 Formatted Text Output Question

Planet Press 7 Question: Input file is a one transaction Line Printer file. Have set up variables for every mapped piece of data I want. Simply want to export this defined subset of data as a tab delimited file to our website folder to concatenate to an existing database. No how to handle everything but how to “place the variables in order” to save a tab delimited data file. Please excuse my low knowledge level of this question.

Perhaps I’m misreading your question, but you just have to use a Create File task that lists all your variables in the order you want:

%{myVar1},%{myVar2},%{myVar3},%{myVar4},%{myVar5}

Then use a Send To Folder task to send that file to the proper destination. If you want to append this new file to an existing destination file, you just have to tick the corresponding option in the Send To Folder task.
