Hi there. Does any know how to prevent my csv data from breaking when I transfer it from a csv export to my spreadsheet?

Problem (CSV Export Bug): When I export the data, a piece of the notes column rolls over into a new row, resulting in additional rows that are unrelated to any record.

Thank you in advance!

How are you opening/transferring it? Does your notes field have rich-text formatting enabled? If so, you might try disabling it or wrapping everything in quotes.

You can try running REGEX_REPLACE({field},"\n"," ") or if its stubborn like in my case REGEX_REPLACE(REGEX_REPLACE(REGEX_REPLACE(REGEX_REPLACE(REGEX_REPLACE(REGEX_REPLACE(REGEX_REPLACE({Field},"\r"," "),"\n"," "),"\r\n"," "),"u2028"," "),"u2029"," "),"u0085"," "),"u00B6"," ")

This took care of most of the line breaks but there are still 2 stubborn line breaks I cannot beat HELP!

You can basically use the app "Excel-Exporter" to avoid troubles and to save time. They have a freemium version and a premium version with a 7 days free trial.
