Exporting a .CSV file with Quotes and/or Commas from the Requirement Grid to import into Excel

Problem:

Exporting a .CSV file with Quotes and/or Commas from the Requirement Grid to import into Excel

Resolution:

Details
Exporting a .CSV file from the Requirement Grid for an import into Excel creates a problem when quotes or commas are in the Requirement Description. In the exported .CSV file, commas or quotes separate objects and place them in separate columns in Excel (ie. Requirement ID, Requirement Name).

If there are any commas or quotes within the Requirement Description, the description gets separated into different columns in Excel.

Work-Around
1. Open the Requirement Grid within the CaliberRM client.
2. Choose "File > Print".
3. Chose "Print Preview". This will open up the preview in Internet Explorer
4. Right-click somewhere within table shown in the preview and choose "Export to Microsoft Excel"

Excel will open and the descriptions with the commas and quotes will properly be within their own cells.
