I'm currently migrating from GCSTAR to Datacrow and have some records which have a double-quote (") in the description field. I've found that this causes Datacrow to combine subsequent records. I tested by importing 21 records. With a description which contained (") in some records I ended up with three records which where a mixture of the 21 records which were imported. When I replaced the double quote with a single quote all 21 records were properly imported. For people who are migrating a large collection this is a major problem since a vast majority of their records will be corrupted - and depending on how they validate the import, they might not immediately be aware. The log file shows no errors when this occurs.
