Hi Experts,

I'd like to keep the double quotes around the values when exporting to a tab-delimited file, however when i export the quotes are not there, do i need to do some sort of programming for that? All other values that do not have double quotes should not have them. I've made a visual presentation to explain better.

THanks so much.
