Dataloader CSV - Non-Breaking Space

Hi All,

 

Is it possible to generate a non-breaking space (hard space) for a particular field in a CSV? 

A CSV loses it's format, so I would like to know if there is a way to add such a hard space. 

 

For instance: the Account object has a field Description. On Salesforce, you can generate hard spaces in this field. 

 

How can you generate such a hard space in a CSV? Using a \n or CHAR(13) or so? And how will this look in a CSV field?

 

Kind Regards,

R

Hi Robin, 

 

If you are entering the value of a particular field which has spaces in it - then just make sure you are using the ,(Comma) exactly to enclose the field and that should work.

Hi Ashish,

 

Thanks. I was able to create the hardspaces using following way (for instance for an Account):

ID,NAME,DESCRIPTION

001b0000008jGohAAE,GeoPoint,"This is

description

with hard

spaces

."

 

Seems to be working!
