Summary13943: R data file export does not work anymore, producing a .CSV file with only 1 recognisable column

When exporting results as 'R (data file)', the resulting .CSV file appears to have a formatting issue - it looks like the column labels are missing the beginning quotation mark ". Therefore the .CSV file only seems to contain 1 data column and the 'read.csv' data import in R retrieves only 1 column (when opening the .CSV file in Excel, the same issue occurs - only 1 column is recognized).
Therefore the .R syntax file (exported from LimeSurvey) also produces an error on line 9: 'Error in [.data.frame(data, , 2) : undefined columns selected' because there is only 1 data column in the data import.

Steps To Reproduce

Admin > Responses & statistics > Export responses > select 'R (data file)' > click 'Export'

TagsNo tags attached.

Hey @iceclimber81, could you please attach an .lsa + the .csv file? It seems that I cannot reproduce your issue.

Hi @cdorin, thanks for checking. I cannot reproduce the issue myself anymore, it appears that something in the recent updates fixed the issue (it occurred on 3.13.2, now using 3.15.8). Thank you for checking anyway - resolved!

@iceclimber81, you're welcome. Yes, there was indeed a recent commit that changed some lines in our R plugin that most probably solved the issue.

Bug report closed.
