Data Export: CSV Format

The Data Export feature is a quick and simple data acquisition tool that allows users to download or send data through email or FTP in CSV or multiple XML formats without loading data directly onto the WQData Live page. This feature removes the required wait time that occurs when loading a substantial data set.

The CSV format is one of three options within the Data Export Tool. This option is a delimited text file that uses commas to separate values, most often utilized in excel files.
