Hi Adrian,

I don't think that's what Chuck is looking for: a field value of one,two or more likely 12,300.00 still needs to be escaped! and currently there is only all or nothing. If space is not the field separator it should not cause quoting.

My current version of gnumeric (0.70) puts quotes around any field that has spaces, which is unnecessary and creates extra diffs against the CVS repository. In fact, extra diffs be created again for those on my team using Excel, which only uses quotes when they're needed.

For example: |one two|three| should be saved as:
one two,three

"one two",three

Does anyone know if the current version of gnumeric still does that?
