Replicator for Text & CSV Files
Please read the basic notes for setting up a replicator on the Replicator Wizard page.
Text or CSV (Comma Separated Values) files contain one dataset in each line. The fields of the dataset are separated with a separator (e.g. comma). A field may be enclosed by double quotes. The first line usually contains the names of the fields. Supported character sets include ASCII, UTF-8 and Unicode (UTF-16 LE). The character set will automatically be determined by the file's Byte Order Mark (BOM)+.
