Hello,

Looking to format one of my columns that I am exporting to a csv.

Cannot find a good example

I tried the following ... how do I format column 15 ... i tried just foobar but does not come through

Thanks,
Evan

    {extend: 'csvHtml5', text:'CSV', className:'btn-link',
     filename: 'my export ' ,
         exportOptions: {
     columns: [ ':visible' ],
     format: {
                 body: function ( data, row, column, node ) {
         return column == 15 ?
                         'foobar':
                         data;
                 }
     }
         }},

    Your code is working in this example:
    http://live.datatables.net/yetefidi/1/edit

    I have not loaded all the extensions like you just the basic Buttons code.

    The only thing I can think of with just your code snippit is the column numbers start counting at 0 so you need at least 16 columns in your table to reference column 15.

    EDIT: I would recommend not loading all the extension like you have. The pages will load faster if you only load what you need.
