Export using DMF and data entity in CSV format but with transformation

Posted on by 1,643

Hi,

I have requirement where I need to export employee clock-in/ clock-out data in csv file format. I can easily do that in DMF but the problem is I need to change the column names in the header of the file that client has specified. Also, I need to transform some data to decrease their length. Is this even possible using DMF framework? Otherwise, I will have to create a custom class to export those data in CSV file but don't really want to go to that route and use DMF framework if possible.

    Sure, if you can create a custom entity, you can name entity fields exactly as you need. You can also set the length of string fields and use virtual fields and/or computed columns for more complex scenarios.
