I have a Starfish map that does a lot of data manipulation before writing data into SalesForce. However my issue is I have over 100,000 records to inject into SalesForce and it only allows 5,000 API calls a day. I've had limited success with the "Use Bulk Mode" option in Starfish when writing to Salesforce.

So I was wondering if there is a way I can have Starfish export a CSV file which is ready to be consumed by the SalesForce Apex data loader? This way I can use the Apex data loader to inject all my records into SalesForce without running into the API limits. Thanks in advance!

Yes you certainly can write to a CSV file and go that route. You'd set your destination using the ODBC Text/CSV driver., though I'd be more interested in the issues you had with the Bulk mode and would prefer to get those resolved if you don't mind. Bulk mode uses significantly less API calls and should really help.
