This would occur if the spreadsheet's or database's CSV (comma separated values) parser is substandard. Excel comes with an excellent CSV parser that knows how to deal with hard returns (aka line breaks, paragraph markers, etc.) that are embedded within the contents of a field.

Most QuickBase data will export seamlessly into Microsoft Excel. However, there are some cases when data is lost or displayed with the incorrect formatting.

One example is exporting a 5-digit zip code stored in a text field. When displayed in Excel, any leading zeroes in the zip code are lost. Similar problems can happen when exporting ID numbers, etc.

1. I have a time of day field set up as military time but when it exports to Excel it converts to normal time and adds AM/PM.

For example, 18:00 exports as 6:00 PM.

2. I have a duration field that is exporting differently than on the view.

For example, 2:30 exports as 2.5 hours.
