Error description

  • Carriage returns in export from Eclipse client causes format
    problems when imported
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • Exporting records in the ClearQuest Eclipse client exports into
    a format which cannot be imported into Microsoft Excel when
    records contain data with carriage returns.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available in ClearQuest 8.0.0.8 and 8.0.1.1.
    
    Exported records that contain carriage returns can now be viewed
    correctly in Microsoft Excel.  A new ClearQuest Eclipse export
    format "ClearQuest import format (Strip CR LF)" has been added.
    The new format quotes fields and strips Carriage returns/line
    feeds, replacing the line feed with a single space.
