Hello,

I'm trying to find a way to be able to export a view in a .txt file based on a template.

Example view:

CleanShot 2023-05-29 at 12.41.29@2x.png

Template would be like:

Hello {Name} {Lastname}, you are a {Age} {Gender}

So the .txt file would look like:

Hello Martin Shelvi, you are a 22 Male

Hello Lara Croft, you are a 29 Female

You can't export as .txt natively but you can export as .csv and open it in a text editor like Notepad/TextEdit.

Create a formula field with the following formula:

"Hello " & {Name} & " " & {Lastname} & ", you are a " & {Age} & " " & {Gender}

Then, either

1. copy and paste only this field into a .txt file
or
2. make it your table's primary field + create a new view with just this field unhidden + export as .csv and open in a text editor
