Eloqua Product Notice: Eloqua CSV Exports – Formula Escaping [Feb 2024]



With the arrival of Eloqua release 24A (Feb 2 - 16, 2024), all CSV exports, including the Bulk API, will escape formulas.

What’s changing?

Prior to Eloqua 24A, CSV exports did not escape formulas. 

With 24A, all CSV exports, including the Bulk API, will escape formulas by prepending each cell field with a formula with a single quote. This includes cell fields that begin with any of the following characters:

  • Equals to (=)
  • Plus (+)
  • Minus (-)
  • At (@)
  • Tab (0x09)
  • Carriage return (0x0D)


Values in Eloqua:

  • Field1: =1+2
  • Field2: ="abc123"

Prior to 24A, the Bulk API CSV export of these fields does not escape formulas:

Howdy, Stranger!
