moderated Re: Direct Add puts a quote mark as first charter in name field from a file

I think  you'll find that Excel is storing the quotation marks around text fields because that is the standard.

Open the file using Notepad on windows machine and you will  see the quotations are in the stored file.

The alternative is that the program that generated the file might have done it.

You usually can control this behavior by doing a File/SaveAs and setting the individual options.
