May be it should be named quotes.....
What file format are you specifying for the export? Some export formats will automatically enclose field data in quotes.
I use Export Records as a comma separated text, into a text-file, using Windows (ANSI) and apply current layout's data formatting to exported data, and this gives the result quote as the first and last character.
I have also tried DOS (ASCII) with or without applying current data formatting to the exported data. But result is the same.
Okay, I got it. Exported it as a tab-separated text, and then: No quotes !
Thanks for good advice !
