Let’s say I had a table of clients - name, address, phone, company, and I wanted to output formatted client text:
Name: John Doe Address: Something Street Phone: 555-1212 Company: IBM
or an outline:
John Doe Residence Something Street Somewhere, USA 555-1212 Company IBM 555-3434
Is there a way to create formatted text files from CSV, TSV, Markdown, that can be used as an input to contact, outline, or mind map applications?
I tried using \t, \r, etc. to see if I could merge and format the data in the columns, however, the ‘\t’ format is written as a literal. Considered trying to work out some kind of RegEx formula, but I would have to set one up for each new format, (if I could even figure it out).
An obvious solution to me would be to put TAB, RETURN, etc., keywords as delimiters, and/or possibly some variable instance setup for labels. I could, also, use ‘Insert’ to prepend labels or TAB(s) or to append RETURN(s). Have I overlooked something in what I’m trying to accomplish?
