Table to txt or xls

Hello Knimers,

I already created a workflow, with the final result of a table view. I need this table view exported in a excel or even better in a text file.

I found a node “text output widget” but I can not connect it.

It would be nice if you could help me out.

Thank you in advance :slight_smile:

Hi Alex,

there’s an Excel Writer node:

For “txt” it depends on the format you’d like. Typically you would export table structures in CSV format. For that you can use the CSV Writer:

Does this help?

PS: It’s worth having a look at the other nodes in the “IO -> Write” section. There are many more file types to which you can output:


Hello Philipp,

first of all thanks for your fast response. With the excel writer I got the format I want, but as I see the CSV Writer is what I need. But if I use the CSV Writer, all the coloumns will be exported, I need just one row of it. Do you know how I can filter it?
In the previous node “Table View” I have just one column named “row4” everything else is hidden.

Hey there,

that’s simple, just add a Column Filter before the CSV Writer:

Kind regards,


Perfect, thanks a lot :slight_smile:
