Could you kindly help me to fix this problem?

@Webex, I assume there should still be some issues with the CSV file. Would you mind having a closer look at it to see if you are able to identify any within the CSV file?
I have two CSV files:
I took into account if the names are unique by assigning a number to the name. The

If I download
https://community.kobotoolbox.org/uploads/short-url/fWUyn0smhReEpFmOyctbmohAf2c.csv, than, excel doens’t show what you observe with the " ; " in the table, but it is already restructured as you show it now. Can there something going wrong with uploading my files that it becomes structered with " ; " in it?
After uploading “BarCodeSpecial” restructured (as in your picture) to the server, the survey works with enkato. However when using kobo collect, the pull data does not work. When I adapt the the CSV file with
concat in excel to one column and upload the file to the server, the pull data works in kobo collect.
How are you?
I am having i think a similar issue, but i didn’t get if you found a solution. Did you?
It does work on-line in enkento, but not in KoboCollect app… am i doing something wrong?
Thank you very much!

In enketo it works when saving the CSV as CSV UTF-8 (delimited by coma) (*.csv), but with this format it doesn’t work in Kobo Collect app
However, saving it as CSV (delimited by coma) (*.csv) it works in both!
So for my side it has worked when NOT using the UTF-8
