Special Characters in Field Values

If you have a field value with a comma (,) or double quote (") character, or you want to preserve leading or trailing spaces, you must embed your field value within a pair of double quotes ("field_value"). You then need to replace double quotes in the field value with two double quote (") characters. For example, "John ""Johnny"" Smith" results in a field value of John "Johnny" Smith.

If you have a field value with a vertical bar (|) or backslash (\) character in it, you must precede it with a backslash (\| or \\).
