I’m trying to create lists with commas in them with “city, states”.
Using the quick input a comma is the delimiter for value.
Importing a .csv file imports the names with quotes around them, which I have to manually remove.
How can I do quick input or CSV such that imports will have the commas excluded as delimiters and quotes won’t appear around each item?
Also, is it possible to export a list?

City and state are in the same column:
ex. Column1 on xls
New York, NY
Los Angeles, CA
When I create a .csv file and import this, perfectforms places quotes around the imported data, to which I have to manually remove.February 9, 2012 at 10:03 pm #6006
I justed tested this myself, and it’s Excel that puts in the double quotes. I entered Vincent’s list of city/states into one column in Excel 2003. I then saved the file as a CSV and immediately opened that CSV file in Notepad. The double quotes were present when I opened it in Notepad.
I would suggest opening your CSV file in Notepad after saving it in Excel and doing a Find/Replace to remove the double quotes.
