From Bugzilla Helper:

BuildID:    2002031312

I much appreciate the new export feature, however I see 3 issues of which the
first is important :

1) Double quotation marks are missing from multi-line "note" fields. Actually,
double quotation marks are missing from all fields. This makes it very difficult
to import.

2) There are two extra empty fields inbetween the "secondary email address" and
the "work phone" fields.

3) Some extra blank lines are appended to the export file.

The above three points mean that mozilla cannot re-import something it has
exported, (not that one would want to, however one would think that mozilla
should be able to).

All the best.


Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a card in a local address book that has multiple lines in its "notes.
2.Export the local address book to CSV format


Running on intel Mandrake 8.1 under KDE.

I created a basic card, entered data in all fields including the Notes area
(which included multiple lines), exported as csv then imported and it looks ok.
