CSV/TXT package

The CSV/TXT package contains actions that enable you to open a CSV or text file, read data from that file, and assign the data to a Table variable. This package supports files encoded in ANSI, Unicode, UTF-8, or Windows-1251, and can process up to one million records.

Perform the following actions within the CSV/TXT package as part of using the set of available actions:
  1. Open the file to be used in the automation. See Using the Open action for CSV/TXT file.
    Note: For files containing large data sets, use actions from the Database package to automate create, read, and update operations. See Using Connect action for database.
  2. Use the Read action to retrieve values from a CSV or TXT file and store them in a Table variable. See Using Read action.

    To retrieve values row by row, use the For each row in CSV/TXT iterator in the Loop action to read values from each row in the file and assign it to a record variable. See Using the For each row in CSV/TXT iterator.

    Note: The Read action and For each row in CSV/TXT iterator only support CSV/TXT files that conform to the RFC 4180 standard. For more information about the standard, see Common format and MIME type for CSV files.
  3. After you have automated the CSV/TXT-related tasks, close the file using the Close action. Enter the session name that was used to open the file with the Open action.
