I see there is CSVExportProvider that I can use to export my table results to a CSV formatted file. I want to write out the results in a tabbed format and not CSV. I assume I have to write my own Provider that implements the ITableContentProvider. Has anyone done this before? Know where to change that comma to a tab?

Any insights experts?

Don’t forget to check the communities site for CAF! (

We have a tutorial called Formatting a Table for Printing that should help:



This tutorial helps. I was able to create a view with my table data (to be printed). But when I open the view (using Extended portlet url) it is opened in the MWS shell. How can I open just the view to print the data in it? I have tried with no help.

As always, help much appreciated.


Never mind. Figured it out !!
