Thanks

It is a PAL command.
You can run it from a Mini Script.
Pal Help has the syntax.

1. PDOX DOS 4.02 Print File question

Can anyone explain to me just what is wrong with the following ?
(outputfile is defined and has been created)

outputfile="r:\\dcehusid.txt"
EDITOR NEW outputfile
DO_IT!
VIEW "dcehusid"
SCAN
PRINT FILE outputfile [Student No], "\t",
                      [Title], "\t",
                      [Forenames], "\t",
                      [Surname], "\t",
                      [Domicile],"\t",
                      [LUSI ID],"\n"
ENDSCAN
This debugs with "Syntax Error: Invalid subscript expression" with the
cursor on the space between "[Student" and "No]"

If I wrap [Student No] in a STRVAL() it works, so this isn't a particularly
urgent query - I'm just curious!

The manual specifically says that expressionlist need not contain string
values ([Student No] is an A13 field)

(the people receiving the file want tab-separated, and the delimiter in pdox
is set to commas, in case you were wondering why I can't just use
ExportImport->AsciiDelimited)

Thanks
