TableCsvImportExport by Adrian Jones

Admin and front-end importing and exporting of CSV formatted content for Profields Table fields.

Table CSV Import / Export

Processwire module for admin and front-end importing and exporting of CSV formatted content for Profields Table fields.

Access to the admin import/export for non-superusers is controlled by two automatically created permissions: table-csv-import and table-csv-export

Another permission (table-csv-import-overwrite) allows you to control access to the overwrite option when importing.

The overwrite option is also controlled at the field level. Go to the table field's Input tab and check the new "Allow overwrite option" if you want this enabled at all for the specific field.

Front-end export of a table field to CSV can be achieved with the exportTableCsv() method:

// export as CSV if csv_export=1 is in url
	$modules->get('ProcessTableCsvExport'); // load module
	$options = array(
        'delimiter' => ',',
        'enclosure' => '"',
        'extension' => 'csv',
        'multipleValuesSeparator' => '|',
        'namesFirstRow' => true,
        'columns' => array('field1','field2'), // columns to export can be index starting at 1, or column names
        'selector' => 'field1%=foo, field2%=bar'
	$p->exportTableCsv('field_name', $options);
// display content of template with link to same page with appended csv_export=1

   echo $page->field_name->render(); //render table - not necessary for export
   echo "<a href='./?csv_export=1'>Export Table as CSV</a>"; //link to initiate export


Front-end import can be achieved with the importTableCsv() method:

$modules->get('TableCsvImportExport'); // load module
$options = array(
    'delimiter' => ',',
    'enclosure' => '"',
    'convertDecimals' => false,
    'multipleValuesSeparator' => '|',
    'namesFirstRow' => false
$page->importTableCsv('field_name', $csvData, $options);
