Write Data to a CSV File

Let’s suppose that you have built a workflow that does what it is supposed to do. Now you need to save the resulting data. Here we show how to save a data table into a text CSV file.

 

Exercise

Read adult.csv data set. Then:

  • calculate total number of rows and average age for all Female with income >50K per year
  • write resulting table to a CSV file using the knime:// protocol to write into a “data” folder under the current workflow folder.

 

Solution
  • Rows with Female earning > 50K /year are 1179 with average age 42.126 years old
  • Relative path used in the CSV Writer node knime://knime.workflow/data/resultingTable.csv
  • Via the folder system, open the workflow folder in the workspace and check whether the file has been written.

A possible solution can be found inside the workflow on EXAMPLES Server:
