We've created an Administrative Landing page which displays a list including peoples email addresses, names etc. My colleagues have asked for an "export" button that would allow them to quickly save out a "tabde.txt" or ".csv". While I could selfishly research this I am guessing it serves myself and our community to find out what functions might quickly serve that purpose. Bottom line question is how to create a link that would export a list of displayed fields from an ExactTarget Data extension as displayed on a Landing Page?

  • Have you tried anything yet? – Kelly J Andrews Jan 29 '14 at 20:28
  • No Kelly, as I didn't really know where to start I thought it may save time to see what the experts do and help share that on SE. Didn't know someone would knock me down a point! (cringe) I thought it was a reasonable thing to ask. Oh well. I can try the jquery solution below, may also integrate well elsewhere but if you know the general direction I should follow within AMPscript etc I'm open to suggestions. – Jonny Shaw Jan 29 '14 at 21:51

    StackExchange can be a bit brutal at times, though it is geared towards being accurate and waffle-free, which is where this type of behaviour comes from. That said since ExactTarget is a new topic for SFSE I want to leave this question open. Good luck! – Matt Lacey Jan 30 '14 at 5:23
  • Are you looking to get all of the data from a specific data extension? We do have extracts but the set up may be more than what you are needing. – Kelly J Andrews Jan 30 '14 at 14:20

I've done this before, just enter all the data into a table layout and use the jQuery table2csv plugin. It works really well.

  • Hi Sandeep, In using the table2csv plugin it appears to create comma delimited text which opens in a browser window but not saved as a file. I'm curious to know if there are any similar extensions known which prompt downloading a file as I don't even know an easy method to copy/paste the csv text window so that it opens in a proper table. – Jonny Shaw Apr 3 '14 at 14:36
