Hi,

I'd like to export a BusinessObjects report with VBA to CSV.

I can already do that with ConvertTo(boExpAsciiCSV,1,"File"), but the fields are not enclosed with double quotes. Which causes the problem that when some fields contain line breaks, they are considered as a new entry.

Thanx for your help.

Hi,

This is solved now.

I just enclose the fields by double quotes in the report itself, before exporting it to CSV.
My problem was that BoB would not concatenate the double quotes (") to the cells. So I did this: =Chr(34) & (cell content) & Chr(34)
and this works fine.

Thanx.
