Name Type Description
stream Stream

A Stream object to which the created CSV file should be sent.


Once the document export has started, it will run until the resulting document is complete and cannot be interrupted or canceled in the process.

Use this method to export a document to CSV format using its current CSV-specific export options. These options are represented by the CsvExportOptions object returned by the ExportOptions.Csv property of a printing system's PrintingSystemBase.ExportOptions. This object provides the TextExportOptionsBase.Encoding, TextExportOptionsBase.Separator and other properties which are intended to specify parameters of the resulting CSV file.

If you want to ignore current export options of a printing system, and use your specific settings when a document is exported to CSV, you should use the overloaded PrintingSystemBase.ExportToCsv method with the options parameter.
