Other strings

The literal string entered.


The strings in the preceding table must be entered literally, using the < and > characters. These special strings can be combined and can also be mixed with other characters.

The default value is a comma (<,>).

CR refers to the character with ASCII value 13.

LF refers to the character with ASCII value 10.

FieldSeparator is only used if the FileFormat Property is set to Variable. Otherwise, the setting is ignored.

You can set the field separator in C/AL code so that the XMLport can import and export records with different separators. For example, if your XMLport must import from a file or stream where one record uses commas and another uses TAB, you can change the field seperator property at run time.
