Exportar tabla

Hola buenas tardes,

tengo una tabla creada la cual quiero exportar la información que contiene. Dicha tabla contiene varios campos y uno de ellos es un  campo que es una descripción (texto largo en el cual hay signos de puntución: puntos, comas, puntos y comas...). 

Cuando la exporto a un csv, a la hora de poner la información en texto en columnas, se descolocan los campos puestos que llevan los signos de puntuación.

¿hay alguna otra forma de poder realizar esa exportación sin que sufra cambios? 

Gracias

Hi @elenavierina ,

To resolve this issue, I recommend following these steps:

1. Use alternative delimiters: When exporting a table to CSV, select delimiters that are not used in the data, such as pipe characters (|) or tabs. This will prevent fields from scrolling due to punctuation.

 

2. Delimit text with inverted commas: Ensure that all text fields are delimited with a double inverted comma ("). This means that everything within an inverted comma should be treated as one field, even if it contains a comma. Most export tools have an option to activate this feature.

 

3. Clean up data before exporting: If possible, consider removing or replacing problematic punctuation in the data before exporting. This can be done either manually or, if extracting data from a database, through a SQL query.

 

4. Use specialized tools: Consider using specialized tools or scripts that can better handle complex data during the export process. tools such as Power BI Report Builder allow more flexibility in exporting data, including setting delimiters and text qualifiers.
