Replacing line breaks before outputing to excel?

Hello, I found a good script to export orders from Magento but when someone has address1 and address2 filled in, it combines them in the table as "street". It must be putting a line break or some charater i can't see, because the excel file is messed up. I attached an export to see what i'm talking about. See line 8

I'm trying to figure out how to strip the "street" column of breaks (if that's what's even happening?)

Thanks in advance.

Check if your data on the db contain embedded line breaks like this:

firstname: Chrissy              
lastname: Parr
address: 1020 james drive
                Suite 101

A field that contains embedded line-breaks must be surounded by double-quotes so:

firstname: Chrissy              
lastname: Parr
address: "1020 james drive
                Suite 101"

You should add the double-quotes to the string.

I cannot really follow the code but maybe I can help a little anyway.

You can (and should) use var_dump() to print out variables when you're not sure what they contain.  It will reveal a multitude of valuable information.

You can (and should) normalize the addresses in your data base.  You can do this with a call to the Google Geocoder.  It will return the correct, normalized address.

This function is how to write a CSV correctly:

You might also want to ask a moderator to remove your credentials from the code snippet.

try this:

Change Line 149 to

$output .= str_replace("\n", " ", $item[$fieldvalue]);

GEEEZE i'm flakin here! can't believe i left those in the code. thanks for pointing that out Ray!

How do i add the double quotes when it's coming into an array. Sorry i'm a  php novice. I was trying to find where it inserts via magento, but that's like finding a needle in a haystack.

fputcsv() will do most of what you need.  Like all PHP functions it is documented in the online man pages:
