OBIEE11g/12c: CSV Export Is Using Double Quotes Incorrectly When Delimiter Is Not Comma
Last updated on JUNE 21, 2018
Applies to:Business Intelligence Suite Enterprise Edition - Version 188.8.131.52.5 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
With OBIEE Version 184.108.40.206.5 and Higher ,
CSV separator is changed from default comma to anything , only values with comma are enclosed in double quotes .
Due to this random double quotes, exported CSV files can not be used in other application to load.
Consider a scenario as below
1. Set column delimiter for csv export from comma(,) to semicolon(;) by putting the following
entry in instanceconfig.xm file
The core problem is not the double quotes, but the alternation. Some rows have double quotes and others have no double quotes (year 2011).
It is important, that either all rows have double quotes, or no rows have double quotes!
