CSV file name ?


Recommended Posts

I need to have the date and time used as a file name for creating CSV files to the SD card (V130).  The CSV files will be created on average 20 times a day.  It may be weeks or months before they are reviewed, thus the need for date and time.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

You're limited to eight characters, so maybe something like DDDYYHH.csv would work, where DDD is the day of the year.

You may want to keep in mind that you only get 64 files per directory and there a main and four sub directories, for a total of 320 files.  The SD card is not a hard disk with virtually unlimited file names.

I'd keep appending one or two big files.  I've done this to thousands of rows with no problems.
