Custom CSV catalogue export character

#77209 (In Topic #15891)



I want to export a few thousand entries from a catalogue to a CSV file. Problem is that " , " isn't enough. There are so many text fields that " , " just messes everything up so I need to use a custom sequence of characters that are hard to come by, like " ##%%## " for example.

Which php file do I have to edit to make sure that the CSV exporter works in such a fashion?

Ah, bug. I think I've fixed it though. If you want to see what I've done just use a diff tool (e.g. winmerge) to compare this version to what you have currently.

  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
