Name: Button_WriteToCSV_01

Range (if applicable): N/A

Description: Up to 5 tags can be written to a .CSV file


  1. Works with any data type (Bool, Integer, Real, or String)
  2. You can use a static file name by adding it to the symbol property FileName with quotes, “TestLog4” for example
  3. The symbol automatically adds “.csv” for the extension
  4. The symbol appends to the file if it already exists, but if it doesn’t exist, it will create it
  5. It creates the file(s) in the projects root folder. With an easy modification, it can log anywhere

Properties: Column 1-5, FileName

Ideas for improvement:

  1. Add different styles
  2. Add the ability to log to .txt, or any other extension
  3. Add the ability to select the path
  4. Add the ability to select append or overwrite


Here’s how to use this symbol:
Copy the .sym file into your Symbol folder of where InduSoft Web Studio is installed. This is usually “C:\Program Files (x86)\Wonderware InduSoft Web Studio v8.0\Symbol” or similar. Either create a new folder or copy it into an existing one, such as “Buttons”.
