We have tried everything to bulk export or import items. We are using 4.5 with MSsql database.
Our ccnames and descriptions have html code which seems to be causing a problem with the data ending up in wrong categories regardless of what delimerter we have tried. (|, ~, tab)
Anyone have any suggestions or tried and true methods?

Thank you in advance.

The only way we have found to be able to do this, and I would very much welcome any other insights, is to once you have exported the file to open it as a text file and simply ensure that every record is on the one line.

Records with HTMl entries seem to always appear on a new line so by deleting the line breaks you can display the import correctly and even open as a csv for easier editing.

Painful true but it works.

We also have a basic faq on our site that may help a little bit as well:
