Filename CSV and Excel export - Mendix Forum

Filename CSV and Excel export


It is possible to export the contents of a data grid to an excel and csv file.

When working with filedocuments it is possible to give the file a name, which will be the filename when downloading the file.

Unfortunately it is impossible to give a custom name to a excel and csv export.


It would be very nice to have the possibility to either, be able to give a name to a csv or excel file through a microflow returning a string, or be able to get a CSV or Excel file in a microflow as a FileDocument, so the filname can be changed in that way.

Anyone knows whether or not this is a planned feature? 

It could save a lot of time, if not having to use the custom excel export module everytime one requires a custom file name...
