Hi! I have written a little class in .NET to convert a DataTable or a dataView to a comma-delimited text file. This file eventually gets imported in Excel or Word. Everything works great, I handled commas and quotes and Excel reads my files correctly. I have one little problem, though... If a field in the datatable has a carriage return in it, it gets written to the text file (of course) and Excel things it's the start of a new record.

Hi everyone, I am on a project here in Germany and am having a tricky problem with decimal points which in Germany (and most other European countries) are represented by a comma instead. My XSLT transforms seem to work only with a point which isn't such a problem: I just tell the users that the 'point is the comma'. However as soon as we start transferring data (e.g. into Excel), the 'decimal points' confuse Excel which is set to expect...

Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...
