Sample Batch Files

This appendix supplies a sample batch file for some batch processes available within Outcomes Assessment. As a rule, all batch process files must be formatted in plain-text file with a .txt or .csv extension. A header row must be included with each attribute name separated from the next by a delimiter. Attributes listed as required must be included or the batch process will fail. Attribute names can appear in any order. The Automatic delimiter setting recognizes common delimiters such as a pipe. Separate each record in the file with a hard return. Each field within the record should be separated from the next by the same delimiter and listed in the same order as header row. Due to browser timeout issues, batch files should be 500 records or less.
