    Q&A 42: Remove quotation marks around the data in a csv file

    Q: Remove quotation marks around the data in a csv file. An Excel file is saved that has quotation marks around the data in the file. Which can be removed by opening Excel and re-saving as the CSV, but this is a manual step at this time. Would we be able to setup a Limagito rule to be able to do something similar for us?
    A: Yes this is possible using our XLS as Destination option. XLS as Destination also handles CSV files. Just be sure that the source files have .csv as extention so we know we need to handle them differently.

    Some screenshots to get you started:

    1.  Since we only want csv files, be sure the set the ‘Filename Include’ filter to *.csv in the ‘File Filter Setup’.

    2. We added XLS as Destination, XLS as Destination also handles CSV files. Just be sure that the source files have .csv as extention.

    3. XLS.CSV as Destination setup. The Output File Format will be ‘Text, Delimiter separated values – with CRLF as End Of Line’.

    Also ‘Text, Delimiter separated values – with LF as End Of Line’ which was added in version v2021.4.4.0

    This way you also can convert:

    • CSV with CRLF as Source to CSV with LF as end Of Line Destination
    • CSV with LF as Source to CSV with CRLF as end Of Line Destination

    To remove the quotation marks you need to enable ‘Import full csv file as text’ option (Common Tab).

    Q&A 20: I’d love the option to go the other way, csv to xls

    Q: It seems XLS as destination is meant to convert Xls as source file. I’d love the option to go the other way, csv to xls. Oh well, feature request.
    A: You are correct the original idea was to convert XLS files but on your request we added this feature request in version v2020.7.12.0

    We added some screenhosts to give you  an idea about the setup. The Source is a Windows folder:

    LimagitoX File Mover Windows Source Folder

    We added a file filter to only include *.txt and *.cvs files:

    LimagitoX File Mover File Filter

    As Destination we added our ‘Add XLS’ option:

    LimagitoX File Mover XLS as destination

    The Csv file that we are going to convert has a comma as delimiter. Our goal is to convert the Csv source file to a Xls file. We enabled ‘Change Extension’ and added .xls as ‘Extension’. File Format was set to ‘Xls, Excel 97-2000-XP-2003’.

    Cell Values, rename options:

    With this option you can rename cell values in rows and colmuns on a selected sheet. The selection of the sheet is possible using index or name of the sheet. Remember, row , column and sheet indexes start at 1 (value = 0 = all rows/columns).
