4.3.1 writer without delimeter - new csv writer does not allow for no delimiter

I would like to export via a writer my knime query results that should be the same fixed width format that the file I brought in was. Prior to upgrading to 4.3.1 the csv writer would allow us to remove the delimiter but the new CSV writer does not allow that field to be empty. Any suggestions for writing a txt file that has no delimiters to be read back in through a fixed width file reader?

Hi @MapperKnime,

you could use the Column Combiner node to combine all columns. Just make sure that you don’t use any delimiter for the combined column. It will fit everything into one column which you can then write using the CSV Writer.

Best,
Julian
