Usage

1
export2csv(x, file, which.table="descr", sep=",", nmax = TRUE, header.labels = c(), ...)

Arguments

x

an object of class 'createTable'.

file

file where table in CSV format will be written. Also, another file with the extension '_appendix' is written with the available data table.

which.table

character indicating which table is printed. Possible values are 'descr', 'avail' or 'both' (partial matching allowed), exporting descriptives by groups table, available data table or both tables, respectively. Default value is 'descr'.

sep
