No Trimming in Output

No Trimming in Output

Hi all,


I am new to telend and I just started working with it today.

Everything works fine so far and I could create my first usable outputs except for one thing


In the Preview section of the screen I can see my "desired" result like 

   ABC27.12.2006        28     1  628250  4561       327.12.2006       582       610 DEF GHI

You will notice that I have blanks in this output because the files I have to create must have the information at specific positions in the line. I did that using the fixed length option in tLogRow


In my output tFileOutputDelimited all blanks are removed and eveything is written directly behind eachother like



How can I make talend stop trimming my output-file.

I just need a "simple" text file as output.

I searched all afternoon but I can't find a solution :-\

I tried different outputs too but it didn't help.


Thank you very much in advance and best regards

With this limited amount of information... Have you tried to use tFileOutputRaw component?
