By default, CSV exports of WPForms entry data will be comma-delimited. However, some systems that accept CSV data may require an alternate delimiter format.

Changing the delimiter for CSV exports for WPForms requires only a short snippet of code. As an example, we’ll modify the CSV separator symbol to be a semicolon.

 * Change delimiter used in WPForms CSV export of entries to semicolon.
    function( $configuration ) {
        $configuration['csv_export_separator'] = ';';
        return $configuration;
