Export cells to CSV loses format


This thread is related to the “Export formatted date to CSV”, but I opened a new thread were all related formatting issues (not only date formatting) could be discussed.

When I export a Excel document with a cell formatted with the type “Social Security Number” then the output differs from Excel. Please could you have a look at the attachted Excel and CSV files? As you can see the formatting is lost and the value is treated as the original number in the output.

Kind regards,.


That is better to open new thread for different type of issue.

Thank you for bringing this to our knowledge. I can see the “Social Security Number” format is lost when saved to CSV [my test output is attached]. I have logged this issue to our Development Team to look into this matter. The Ticket ID for your reference is CELLSJAVA-28240. We will keep you posted on this.


Currently we do not support such kind of format. We need more time to look into it and check whether we can support it.
