    Default csv file creation

    I have used the Formshandler wizard to create a csv file and understand how everything works inclusive of the create db wizard. I am now using a layout form, I inserted components and filled in the "CSV File Path" in FormsHandler (PHP) Action. However I cannot figure out how/when the csv file gets created? Should it generate on the first form submission? Do I need to generate a blank csv file first. Presently getting a 500 error and I know what the error means, it cannot find the csv file. Does anyone know how this is done?

    I don't use NoF for forms, but have you tried creating the csv file on the server, making sure it has write permissions and then making sure the path to the file is correct in the formshandler properties?

    Thanks Franko. Yes I used FileZilla to create the csv file on the server. It created ok but was a blank file with filesize=0 and permission =0666. I know the file should have headings similar to the below but I am trying to not have to manually create it, its too easy to make a mistake.
    id;:;firstname;:;lastname;:;title;:;description;:; date;:;email;:;emailonpage;:;picture;:;validation
    What do you use to create your forms?
    Regards
