Description Frantisek Hrbata 2012-08-31 04:55:03 EDT
Description of problem:

Malformat exported CSV file. It contains new lines within entries. IMHO each entry should be on a single line. This makes for example correct import to calc impossible.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. query some bugs to create a buglist in the bugzilla's web interface
2. select CSV to export the buglist to csv file
3. try to import the file e.g. to oo calc
Actual results:
Thanks to the newlines within a single entry, there is more rows then entries and some column values are displayed wrongly in new row. Basically each line is interpreted as a new entry, but the entry by itself contains new line. 

Expected results:
Exported csv file will contain each entry on a single line, so import and working with csv is possible again.

Additional info:

If the default column selection does not result in a malformed csv, try to add more columns with the "Change Columns" option.

Great, I'm using this in my cmdl tools to quickly get some basic info about bzs.

Many thanks.
