We need to have an option to preserve spaces in between data.
Details of the symptom are explained in case TS000128469.
When you import a csv data into WEXAC, some data are structured with data like productID. That productID might contain a meaningful number of spaces such as "prod1 d1", "prod1 d1", "prod1 d1". But currently, when you import such data, all the spaces are replaced with a single space. (All data will be "prod1 d1")
Because of this behavior, we cannot search for data using productID which are no longer unique. Also, when WEXAC is used along with other software like Db2, it makes it impossible to search using productID. Db2 preserves number of spaces so no data match.(even with Microsoft excel).
We need to have an option to preserve spaces when importing such data.
If this option becomes available, it will be much easier and more flexible to use WEXAC especially when collaborating with other software or applications.
