[resolved] Export/import CSV link error (4 posts)

    Hi there. I have a "link" form element with a Link Text field. When I export as CSV the Link and Link Text are not exported as separate fields but instead the link has the link text added within the same field separated by a comma. Thus, when I import the same CSV file the fields do not mirror what was exported. Hopefully I've made myself clear with this explanation of what's happening. Is there a solution to this dilemma?

    Still looking for help on this one. As I tried to explain, when I export a CSV the Link field (in this case a URL) and Link Text (in this case just a single text word) are combined into one field comprised of Link plus a comma separator plus Link Text. When I import this same CSV file the Link field is populated with this combination of Link and comma separator and Link Text. To get around this I edit the CSV before import to delete the comma separator and Link Text. However, the Link Text field is also populated with Link data which means I have to manually edit each entry to change the Link Text back to the single text word. Would some kind person offer suggestions what I might be doing wrong or suggest a workaround. TIA.
