Getting form entries from database into a txt file?

  1. Our client needs to be able to access a .txt of form entries. They have setup a sample how it needs to be formatted - http://liveonaz.org/dnaz/fdonor.txt

    We can currently export it like that no problem - but the client has a script that can automatically grab a txt document and insert it into their main database so we need some way to have this file automatically be created somehow?

    You would probably need to write a script/plugin that queries the entries and outputs them in that format. If you look at the built in GF export functionality as a guide, you should be able to figure out something.

    I agree, this isn't built-in currently. You would have to custom create something that pulled the values from Gravity Forms and outputted them the way you've set up. I will say though that a CSV is really just a text file formatted a certain way. You can even change the column separator if that will help get you closer to what you want:
