Created attachment 141103 [details]
The attached is a csv file generated from an old dos app. It is CSV but it imports into LibreOffice as one line, the newlines are not being recognised.
Note, this file can be imported successfully by Excel. After saving it as csv in Excel, it works. Excel strips out all the 00 byte values, perhaps they are confusing LibreOffice?

excel's rewrite of the CSV file, which now imports in LO
This attachment is the csv generated after importing the original file in Excel and saving it again. The quoting of text fields has changed, but it is the 00 bytes which cause the problem

00 bytes replaced
I used a hexeditor to replace the 00 bytes with 0x20
Now it imports into LO. So the 00 bytes are definitely the problem.
I CAN reproduce with:

Dear Tim Richardson,
To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.
There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.
If you have time, please do the following:
Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/
If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
Please DO NOT
Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not
appropriate in this case)
If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/
2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://kiwiirc.com/nextclient/irc.freenode.net/#libreoffice-qa
Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!
LO Calc opens that example CSV with three rows if you select ' instead " in "String delimiter" drop-down list in "Text Import" dialog.
I think we can close it as WFM.
