CSV Export does not handled by Excel correctly

Issue #7 closed
Areg Vrtanesyan created an issue


I have noticed that CSV export is not handled by Excel correctly if field description has new lines in it together with commas and quotes.

The only way that I have found to workaround it is to:

  • Open file in text editor like Notepad++
  • Add separator value at the first line like "sep=|" - no quotes
  • Replace first line column name separator from comma to |
  • Search and replace "," combination with "|"
  • Check for occasional empty new lines ...

Then I can open it in Excel and analyse data.

Could some kind improvement be added for this?

May be sanitise descriptions for new lines, commas and quotes?
