Export data - html code included?
Core developersParticularly helpful MoodlersPlugin developers


When exporting the entries from a database activity, fields of text editor type are exported with HTML, instead of just the text.


Is there a way to change this?

I don't know if it's editor related, but we're using the atto editor.

Yes, the export includes every piece of HTML code. It is not editor related. 

You can ask your users to click the <> button in the editor toolbar to remove the HTML code.

Or, you can select all of the <code> and delete them in the Excel spreadsheet, this is an extra (but one-off) task for you, but is more practical than the other way.
