    Hi Heikki Salminen,

    unfortunately not yet. There are other ideas having more votes.

    For .csv files you could use the standard Export to Excel function on every list/library and save it as csv in Excel

    Hi Matthias Walter

     

    Unfortunately using "Export to Excel"  is not an option. I need to generate a csv-file per order when saving the form.

    I am interested in generating XML files as a form schema for uploading into an InfoPath form library.

    Currently, I have to generate the Word document and then manually "copy the contents as plain text into Note Pad to be saved with ".xml" file extension. I already voted for this feature.

     

    UPDATE: Apr 20, 2019

    A simple solution to generate text based files like "xml" files is to generate a Word document with the XML contents as normal Document Generate process. Then open the generated file in Microsoft Word program and 'Save As Text' to create a new file with the ".txt" extension. Next you may change the file extension of ".txt" to ".xml" for the final touch.

     

    Remember, if you 'Save As XML' then the file will include lots of unwanted contents that does not serve the purpose to have a simple XML file.
