Remove quotes when converting CSV to Excel

Hi all,

 

I'm using the following technique to convert CSV data into Excel:

Convert CSV files to Excel workbooks - Office Scripts | Microsoft Docs

 

However, as some values in the CSV contain a comma, they are wrapped in quotes. Example:

Header1,Header2,Header3
A,"1,00",Foo
B,"2,00",Bar

 

The quotes are carried over to Excel, which is unintended.

Header1Header2Header3
A"1,00"Foo
B"2,00"Bar

 

Can I edit the script or otherwise remove the quotes from the final Excel somehow?

Hi @AlexMB 

 

 

Assuming it is column B, just add the following to the end of your script:

 
selectedSheet.getRange("B:B").replaceAll("\"""", {completeMatch: false, matchCase: false});
 

Please consider accepting my answer as a solution if it helps to solve your problem.
