Export Records (CSV/TAB) in WebDirect from FM Cloud Missing Delimiters

Product and version

FileMaker Cloud 15 and WebDirect

 

Browser and version

Windows Chrome 55

 

Description

Export Records Script Step in Cloud/WebDirect deployment creates a .tab or .csv file with missing carriage returns (or line feeds) at the end of each record.  The file opens correctly in Excel, with records seperated - but when viewed in Notepad you can see there are no record delimiters and it is all on one line.  Running the same script from Pro on Windows generates a file with the correct CR/LF end of record delimiters.

 

How to replicate

Export records in csv or tab format from WebDirect running on FM Cloud.  View resulting exported file in Notepad to see missing end of record delimiters.
