export in csv error

Postby ckarganilla » January 16th, 2019, 2:53 am

Hi!

I just need help.
I am exporting a data in CSV format. One item in the data file is in "alpha" data type. After exporting this data, it became "**". What will be the possible solution to this problem? Thanks

It is hard to know what is happening without seeing your dictionary. Generally alpha values are output just as they appear, so I am surprised by your report. Can you send your dictionary and an example of where this is happening to cspro@lists.census.gov.
