export to csv data seperator

Hi all, 

 

I want to create a csv file based on the operator "Create a csv". 

 

Heres a Picture of my flow:

My problem is, that the data in the csv is seperated by "," but my excel needs ";" to seperate the data into columns.

I guess this problem appears because of my regional settings.

 

Is there a solution or workarround for me?

Hi @Anonymous,

 

I have seen a workaround with a replace function. The , delimiter is first replaced by a unique character which isn't used in the content of the csv file. That new character is replaced by a ; character. 

 

That approach can be found in this thread:
