8. CSV Profiles

CSV Profiles are created to define how you would like your cart or list to export.

8.1. Add CSV Profiles

To add a CSV Profile

  • Click 'CSV Profiles' from the Tools menu

    • The 'Profile name' will appear on the export pull down list when choosing 'Download' from your cart or list

    • The 'Profile description' is for your own benefit

    • The 'CSV separator' is the character used to separate values and value groups

    • The 'Field separator' is the character used to separate duplicate fields

      • Example: You may have multiple 650 fields

    • The 'Subfield separator' is the character used to separate duplicate subfields

      • Example: You may have multiple $a subfields in a field

    • The 'Encoding' field lets you define the encoding used when saving the file

    • Finally format your CSV file using the 'Profile marcfields' fields

      • Define which fields or subfields you want to export, separated by pipes. Example : 200|210$a|301

      • Tip

        You can also use your own headers (instead of the ones from Koha) by prefixing the field number with an header, followed by the equal sign. Example : Personal name=200|Entry element=210$a|300|009

8.2. Modify CSV Profiles

Once you have created at least one CSV Profile an 'Edit profile' tab will appear next to the 'New profile' button.

  • Choose the profile you would like to edit and alter the necessary fields.

  • To delete a profile, check the 'Delete selected profile' option before clicking 'Submit Query'

8.3. Using CSV Profiles

Your CSV Profiles will appear on the export list or cart menu under the 'Download' button
