FAQ - CoMod
I have problems with semicolons or line feeds in CSV field contents which are causing the merge run to terminate. What can I do?
In the case of semicolons or line feeds in the text, it is sufficient to enclose the field contents in quotation marks:
Contents of field 1;"Contents of field 2;
More contents of field 2";Contents of field 3
Otherwise, semicolons are interpreted as separators and line breaks as end-of-data-record. Mask quotation marks which may occur in the field contents or else they will be interpreted as bracketing - Details in the relevant FAQ article .
