RE: How to format output table as purely comma-separated file

Well, this is not a strange behavior, this is a standard FORTRAN formatting process.
Nonetheless, I can add a delimiter option that specifically removes spaces for future releases of NONMEM.

I am also wondering why NONMEM has this strange behavior. Is there any possibility for the developer to fix that? at least to provide an option to exclude the space.

Spaces as well, yes, but a simple click on the file opens nicely into EXCEL without Data/Text Import. Thank you.

Thanks for the input but I already tried that (or things along the line of FORMAT=,1PE11.4). Commas are indeed in the table file... but so are spaces.

Hi Sebastien,

Try the following example code, with the relevant pieces in red:

I was wondering if there is a way to create "pure" csv file with $TABLE. I have tried various things with the FORMAT option but always ended up with spaces in between entries (in addition to the comma delimiters).

Is there a proper fortran format one can use in $TABLE to make this happen?

Thanks in advance
