How does one write a data table to a text file?

I have created a data table.
Writing data to it in a loop.
Need to write the data table data to a text file.
The compiler complains that ‘System.Data.Data Table’ cannot be converted to a String.
Is there a way to get this done?

Hi @abhayk,

Have you tried OutputDataTable Activity? Writes a DataTable to a string using the CSV format.

Besides above solution, i think you can use “Write CSV” with text file path (you get to choose comma and semicolon delimiters).

Thanks Susana and vvaidya for you suggestions.
I was initially trying the Write CSV option but it was not available then added it and now will be using that.

Hi,
I want to know as to how one can data scrape something which is in tabular format and print it in notepad.

@rashi.bajpai

Data scrapping gives you output as datatable so use outputdatatable activity to convert datatable to string.
Write text file activity to write string to text.
