To export user data into a csv I've setup a view display of type data export succesfully. I've setup a path "admin/people/export" and when visiting it will return a file. The file is a csv file but it's created without the extension .csv.

Is there a way to create this file with this extension?

Thanks in advance

  1. Go into your view
  2. Go Under Format > CSV File > Settings
  3. Check off Provide as file
  4. In the Filename field, add %view.csv

  • Not sure wether to create another issue. Another problem has popped up. In Open Office this .csv file opens fine (as in, with data rendered into rows and columns) but in Windows (Office 2003) all data shows up in one column – undersound Sep 26 '12 at 16:11
