Hi All

I think the problem is, that JasperReports tries to export the Report in the really same format in every output-type ...

It shall look similar in everey format ... pdf shall look like html ... thats clear ... but csv and xls shall also look like html or pdf ... thatsway the "placeholder" to "format" the csv to look like html or pdf where integrated in the csv-output ...

If you set textfields in the report, which left or right edges are not at the same position, or if there is one field, which has the double size of the two columns in the next row ... then severals commas will be used to format the output ...
I think the same thing could be happen, if you have a large title with edges which "conflict" with the other fields ...

The insertion of seperate commas during the csv-export makes in my opinion no sense ... but its tha way JasperReports do this export ...
I think there are (at least one) exporterclass(es), which implement another export-strategie fpr csv ... I thought i've read about in another forum ... but i don't find the exporter in the web ...

have a lot of fun with trying to search a solution ;-) ...
