    Default HTTP Client

    Can someone tell what step I need following a HTTP Client step that returns a csv file in the result? I want to be able to do some transformations on the result after it's received from the HTTP Client step, but I can't figure out what step I need to get the result into a usable format. Appreciate it.

    A Text-File-Output step will create a CSV file from your fields.
    So long, and thanks for all the fish.

    Thanks for the reply. I got that working. Is there a way to work with that output file from the same transformation if I already haven't a hard-coded file name or will I need to then return the file name from the file output step and then create another transformation and get the file name from the previous transformation?

    I don't understand where you are heading.
    If you want to process your data just after you wrote it out to a CSV file: The stream is still intact, so you can simply draw a hop from Text-File-Output to another step.
    So long, and thanks for all the fish.

    You might even be able to just simply put the http:// call in a Text File Input step, and let it consume it directly.
