Separated Values Text Export

This tool allows you to save the contents of a table into a plain text file (.txt extension). Every line of the text file corresponds to one row of the table. Values from individual columns are separated by a specified character (typically the tab character). Columns that have a more complicated structure (such as a nested table) are first converted to strings using a standard type conversion and then they are represented by a single item in the result as well. The tool is opened by the Tools|Export and Import|Separated Values Text Export menu command.

If the Use active table option is selected, information about the used table is displayed.
