CloudExtend Excel Data Management for NetSuite masks the NetSuite internalID for picklist fields such as company name, item, etc. with your data by inserting a line break into a row. This means for any given row that is expanded you will also see the internal ID for certain fields expressed as [[nnnn]].
Customers that want to remove the reference to the internalID for reporting purposes can easily remove it by following the steps below.
Step 1: Load your template.
Step 2: Download your data.
Step 3: Insert a column anywhere in the template being sure not to add any value in Row 1 (it's fine to change the name of the column from ColumnN to something more descriptive in Row 2).
Step 4: Use a formula to look up the field and only import the characters to the left of [[.
=LEFT(A1,FIND("[[",A1)-2) is an example formula that assumes the field you want to remove the brackets from is in cell A1.
Step 5: Excel should automatically copy your formula to the bottom of the table column and your new column will have just the value for your field without the [[nnnn]].
💡 Pro tip - create/record a macro that you can run on-demand that inserts the column and then inserts the formula as well. Moving forward running the macro will be super fast. See this article for more information.
