Hello,

Does anyone know how/if possible to append to a csv file in progress.   As it stands now I have a export stream that moves the data from the tmp table to the file.  If the file exists I need to append to it.   I have not been able to accomplish this task.  Please help if possible.

Thanks

OUTPUT TO <stream> TO <filename> APPEND should work

You may need to test for file existence first!

Just open the stream append. It should create the file if it doesn't exist if I remember correctly.
