EA 1310.

I want to export a CSV report listing names and tagged values for some elements. I use the Publish / CSV exchange specification menu to make a file specification including fields "Name" and tagged value "Remarks", which is a memo type tagged value.

When I run the CSV report, everything works correctly except all the "Remarks" fields are blank.

If the "Remarks" tagged value is NOT "memo" type then the fields are not blank and all entries are visible in the exported CSV file.

My current workaround is to make 'Remarks" a normal tagged value then enter the text in the notes field of the Remarks tagged value; then select Tagged value notes in the CSV exchange specification. But I think it would be better if "memo" type tagged values exported to CSV correctly. Is this a bug?  Should I file bug report?  Thanks!!

For adding memo type tags in the csv specification, select
Add Tagged Value Field --> Notes

Thank you very much VKN!!  I tried it and as you say, EA does not make a difference between a Tagged Value "memo" type and a tagged value note (I assumed they would be different things, i.e. a "memo" type tagged value could have its own separate note).  Misleading, but easy to correct.  Thanks again!!
