UNSOLVED Export archive file to csv


  • Hi, is it possible to set up the MangoES to export data as a csv/excel file, ideally on a separate local drive? Ideally this would be a daily or monthly file saved to a specific location, where the site engineer can access it if required.


  • You can use the Excel reports module to generate an Excel file on a schedule. The files are stored on the local system in /opt/mango/web/modules/excelReports/web/report-data

    You could set up a cron job to copy all these files to your location of choice.


  • Hi Joel,

    Thanks for your reply. That looks like being a potential solution for us. Is cron able to copy the files to a Windows machine? And does the Excel report allow data / time to be appended to the file name?


  • You could set up a ftp process to push the file to a windows machine. The file names look like: Nov_13__2016_9_00_00_AM_Sync_Time_Report.xlsx

    We can probably make that work. Just one question - does the Mango have Samba (installed and configured), and therefore set up a shared directory. This way we can 'pull' from Windows?


  • I'm not sure if Samba is installed but you could probably install it if isn't.
