I've not added this to another post about MAC as the post appears to be a little contensious!

When using UDE to spawn a csv file from server, the process fails on on a MAC. The file name is truckated, and the data all appears in a single cell. No problem at all on PC.

I am sure there was no problem prior to Version 113.

Have you had any other reports?

Hi Miroslav

My MACy colleague tells me that Safari and Firefox give the same problem, and using Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:

I have a copy of the file both as received on MAC and the same file via PC. The MAC version does not show any filetype

If I rename the MAC file to file on PC to filename.csv it open in Excel and displays correctly.

I also have an intermittent problem with exports on a Mac. It seems to be buggy if there are any 'null' cells. When I am having trouble I seem to be able to get it to be able to get it to work by putting some sort of value in place of nulls. (I use a dash in text columns and a 0 in number columns.) For some reason it doesn't happen with all recordsets. Today I am exporting a recordset loaded with nulls. Its a real pain but when I get desperate I trap all of my nulls in the query with an ifnull statement.

I hope you find a solution!
