Hi,

I am trying to export form submissions by csv, and am finding field contents have been split across multiple cells.

I have read and understood this guide:

crosstec.org/en/support/online-documenta...ening-correctly.html

and have tried different combinations of delimiters and "CSV Linebreaks in cells" settings with no success. I suspect this is because my issue is the opposite to the one solved by your guide.

I am finding that many text area fields have been split into separate cells. I believe users have been pasting in formatting including bullet points, which are also acting as cell delimiters in the export. Even what look like line breaks / new paragraphs seem to be causing issues. I have tried using very unique special characters as the delimiter, but this doesn't help.

Many cells seem to end with this:

\n-

which I suspect is related to the split of one field into multiple cells.

This:

\n\n

also appears mid-cell, in many cases.

Please can you advise how I can fix this?

I can send an example, but can't upload it here due to allowed file extensions.

Thanks

Hi,

when you use CSV export your CSV field separator is ";", and CSV text separator is ' " '.

This you can find in BF->Configuration
