Can results be returned in multiple files instead of concatenating to a single file?

Could I ask for a bit more details on what you are trying to do?  The multiple result sets are handed back as a single response to the web server where it is then either fed to a multi-section report or export.
Just looking to see if instead of creating a multi-section report it could generate multiple files instead.  One file for each section.  In my case I would setup a CSV export, so each section or file would be of type CSV with possibly different columns.

Currently when dbFront needs to return multiple resultsets, it returns either:

  • A multi-segment Report,
  • A multi-worksheet Excel file,
  • Or a single CSV file with multiple sections delimited by a double blank lines.

The ask is to return multiple CSV files. Would a Zip file containing multiple CSV files be acceptable?
