Write to Spreadsheet File (Double) (G Dataflow)

Version:
    Last Modified: January 9, 2017

    Converts a 1D or 2D array of double values to a text string and writes the string to a file.

    This node creates a text file readable by most spreadsheet applications. This node opens or creates the file before writing to it and closes it afterwards.

    format

    A string that uses format specifiers to determine how to convert the data to characters. Examples:

    • %d — converts the data to integer form using as many characters as necessary to contain the entire number
    • %s — copies the input string

    Default: %3f — creates a string to represent the number with three digits to the right of the decimal point

    datatype_icon

    file path

    The file that this node writes to. The node opens the specified file without requiring you to call Open/Create/Replace File first.

    Default: No value — Displays a file dialog box that prompts you to select a file.

    datatype_icon

    2D data

    Data the node writes to the file if 1D data is not wired or is empty.

    datatype_icon

    1D data

    Data the node writes to the file if this input is not empty. The node converts the 1D array into a 2D array before proceeding.

    If transpose? is False, each call to this node creates a new line or row in the file.

    datatype_icon

    append to file?

    A Boolean that determines whether to add data to the end of the file. If you do not specify a file, the node creates a new file.

    True Appends data to the existing file.
    False Replaces the data in the file.

    Default: False

    datatype_icon

    transpose?

    A Boolean value that determines whether to transpose the data before conversion.

    True Transposes the data.
    False Does not transpose the data.

    Default: False

    datatype_icon

    delimiter

    A character or string of characters used to separate fields in the spreadsheet text. For example, a value of , (comma) specifies a single comma as the delimiter.

    Default: \t — single tab character

    datatype_icon

    new file path

    Path to the file.
