Why are quotes duplicated in my metadata?

  • You need to include double-quotes around text in your metadata, but it appears duplicated when you view it in the web page afterward.
Applies to

This is actually a known issue stemming from the way MS Excel handles quotes when exporting tab-delimited data. You can do a Find > Replace in the exported tab-delimited text file to replace the double-quotes with single quotes to fix it before importing the data.
