Exporting contents to Excel should provide the complete contents of a long text field

Currently when we export quality events out of Veeva eQMS using either the Export to CSV or Export to Excel functionality we are not getting the complete contents of long text fields like Description. The description field is truncated to less than 255 characters.

I opened a support ticket and was told this was expected behaviour.

    Hi Dan - thanks for letting us know you would like to see the character limit increased. We are considering increasing this to 1,500 in the short term to be consistent with the maximum length of normal text fields. Do you think 1,500 characters would be sufficient for reports for the time being? Currently exports using Vault loader and VQL support the full text.

    Best regards, Graham

    Hi Graham, if I am not mistaken there is a planned update for this in 20R1 or 20R2. 1500 characters does not sound that much to be honest. We have a several fields with limit 32000 characters. Personally, I'd expect from export function to see "everything".

    Thank you,

    Hi Graham,

     

    This is really a must needed feature for the users. Could you please confirm any timeline for the same to be implemented as in our organization we are receiving this request quite often and users are in real frustration. Thanks for your understanding and please fix it at the earliest.

    Thanks for the feedback Pavol and Yuvi. We are now thinking that allowing the full text to be exported from reports as CSV/Excel is the right approach. I don't have a target release for this yet, but it is on our short term roadmap. 

    Best, Graham

    Dear both, this was already implemented in the limited release environments. Have a good day,

    Hi Pavol - thanks for pointing that out. Object list views will support the full text. Exports from reports are not yet supported.

    Best, Graham
