Posted on 2011-03-17

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I have a select which stores the results and returns distinct records to the page. I would like the option of adding a link to my page which when clicked will export the results to a CSV file. Is this possible?

My query is as follows:

set demousers=Conn.Execute ("SELECT DISTINCT firstname AS firstname, lastname AS lastname, email FROM uga_comment UNION ALL  SELECT DISTINCT fname AS firstname, lname AS lastname, email FROM cfp_demo ORDER BY lastname ASC")

Open in new window


Any help or guidance is appreciated.

Thank you.

Try this code.
'EXPORT TO CSV
<%
If (Request.Form("Action") = 1) Then
	
	set demousers=Conn.Execute ("SELECT DISTINCT firstname AS firstname, lastname AS lastname, email FROM uga_comment UNION ALL  SELECT DISTINCT fname AS firstname, lname AS lastname, email FROM cfp_demo ORDER BY lastname ASC")
	
	dim strCSVContent
	    		    	
	Response.Clear
	Response.ContentType = "application/vnd.ms-excel"
	Response.AddHeader "Content-Disposition","attachment; filename=" & "somefilename.csv"
		
	If not demousers.EOF then
            Do while not demousers.EOF
            
	        strCSVContent = "firstname,"& demousers("firstname ") & vbcrlf
	        strCSVContent = strCSVContent & "lastname, "& demousers("lastname") & vbcrlf
	        strCSVContent = strCSVContent & "email ,"& demousers("email ") & vbcrlf
	
	    demousers.MoveNext
            loop	
	end if
        
        demousers.Close()
        
	Response.Write(strCSVContent)
	Response.End

End if
%>

<form name="frmSearch" method="post">
	<input type="hidden" name="Action" value="" />
	<a href='javascript:document.forms[0].Action.value=1;document.forms[0].submit();' >Create CSV</a>
</form>
