Thread: Lost periods on export

    Default Lost periods on export

    When I export the database either as text or an Excel file
    the periods from the initial field go away.
    I have a simple mask for the field using L. then I tried
    a mask of L\. but both have the periods stripped on export.
    The periods are in the two character field in the database.

    Don't know how you're doing it, but here's a working example that seems to preserve the period used in a mask.
