export_format table

Hi all,

This is a follow-up to my previous post that is currently being held upon approval( I was a Guest when I sent it out. Now I have a developer’s role.).

I forgot to mention in that email that the export_format table needs to be populated since the “archived_dataset_file” depends on it.
I have one entry defined for the “csv” format: 2, "csv", "comma separated value", "text/csv".
There are 3 values for the export_format_id field as defined in ExportFormatBean.

Note that there are 6 constants defined in ExtractBean class:

public static final int SAS_FORMAT = 1;

public static final int SPSS_FORMAT = 2;

public static final int CSV_FORMAT = 3;

public static final int PDF_FORMAT = 4;

public static final int XLS_FORMAT = 5;

public static final int TXT_FORMAT = 6;

As you can see, the value for CSV_FORMAT is 3, instead of 2 . They are not used currently but may cause problems down the road.

Just my 2 cents.
