Double Quotes Missing In CSV Output When Comma and Spaces In The Output (Doc ID 2650411.1)

Last updated on APRIL 08, 2020

Information in this document applies to any platform.


When exporting a BI Publisher report in CSV format that contains a comma or a space in the data value(s), the comma is not escaped correctly. The value is not enclosed in double quote - the Double Quotes " " are missing in the CSV file.

For example, assume that a field has "Lastname, Firstname" (such as fictitious name "Doe, John") in it and it is exported to CSV. The CSV file currently contains:
Field 1 value,Doe, John,Field 2 value

This is not correct per CSV specs. It should instead contain double quotes around Doe, John:
"Field 1 value","Doe, John","Field 2 value"

Same issue occurs when there are spaces in the field.


The problem is only relevant to CSV export. Exporting to a different format is irrelevant.
