The IATI Technical Team has released v1.5.0 of Datastore Services, which affects Datastore Search.
1. Further enhancements to the Excel-optimised CSV format: Some multivalued columns returned by the Datastore Search had the potential to be incorrectly interpreted as long numbers by Excel (e.g. "41119,41119,41119" could in some circumstances be interpreted by Excel as "411194111941119"). To preserve the separation of these values and prevent incorrect interpretation by Excel, multivalued columns on the Excel-optimised CSV format are now separated by a pipe character (i.e. the example above will appear as "41119|41119|41119").
Full details of the changes can be seen in the GitHub release notes for Datastore Services. Many thanks to those who have used IATI Datastore Search and provided feedback and suggestions for improvements and new features.
