I have csv files generated from an SQL command-line utility that I am trying to convert to dBase using the batch converter. If I open the csv in LibreOffice, a default option is "Quoted fields as text", and if it is saved as another filetype, those fields remain text, but when using the batch converter it will bring all numbers in as numbers, even if they are quoted. The command I am using is:
libreoffice --headless --invisible --convert-to dbf *.csv
I have the same results if I convert to other spreadsheet types. Is there a way to tell the batch converter to convert "quoted fields as text"?
