Error description

  • When importing values separated by a single LF character into a
    multiline-string field a CR character gets added before the LF
    in all values except for the last one.
    
    This is typically the case when a multiline-string field that
    has a constant-list for its Choice List gets exported and
    imported again.

    In ClearQuest Eclipse, importing values separated by a
    single LF (Line Feed) character into a multi-line string
    field results in a CR (Carriage Return) being added before
    the LF in all values except for the last one.  This is
    typically the case when a multi-line string field which has
    a constant-list for its Choice List gets exported and
    imported again.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available in ClearQuest 8.0.0.8 and 8.0.1.1.
    
    The ClearQuest Eclipse import no longer results in a CR
    (Carriage Return) being added before the  LF (Line Feed) in
    all values except for the last one.
