Customizing CSV report templates

NetVault Backup uses built-in templates to format the output for CSV reports. You can customize these templates to define custom delimiters or add line breaks, tabs, or separators. The formatting styles are applied globally to all CSV report templates. Only users familiar with the use of control characters and escape sequences in CSV output should configure these settings. Improper configuration can cause NetVault Backup to produce incorrect output.
