Format of workitem attribute type field is different when exported in

Pavithra Kasturirangan (42945556) | asked Nov 27 '12, 2:07 a.m.

We were in earlier. When we exported the query result and brought the output of the attribute field of type "Workitem" the output used to be like this
Type   Id CustomerID
Defect  1997 45: test 2

In, the export result is as below
Type   Id CustomerID
Defect  1997    #45

Can someone let us know if this is an intentional change ? if so, the reason behind this change ? Is there any workitem in related to this change ?

Yes, the csv export behaviour has changed between and for attributes of type work item. This change was necessary to make the import work correctly with work item references. The work item under which this has changed is

However, the functionality for the format for the html export has not changed and will still output the work item reference in the old format. I would advice to use the html format if readability is a big concern.
