Save serial.println to file

Is it possible to save the serial.println data to a actual file. In colums

You can copy and paste from Serial Monitor.

If you want neat columns you can use the tab ("\t") character.

If you want to import into a spreadsheet you can use commas to separate fields and save the text in a .csv (Comma Separated Values) file. Then import that into your spreadsheet.

Its great but how do I save it to a cvs file?

Like I said before:

a .csv file can also work with tabs .... not necessary , 's

using another terminal program - e.g. putty.exe - can automatically capture received bytes to a file.

So the only way is to copy and paste. I had hoped that I could save it to a simple textfile or a datasheet of some sort.

The EASIEST way is to copy and paste.

You can use a third-party terminal emulator (such as the Putty mentioned above), or write a custom program in whatever language you like to read from the serial port and write to a file, or add an SD card to your project and write directly to a file which you could then import into a PC, or use and Arduino Leonardo and emulate a USB keyboard to type the data directly into the program of your choice.
