Exporting a collection using mongoexport truncates the string field and append "..." to it. Is there a way to disable this feature in the export?

Does this seem to be for fields that contain a certain length, or
above, or is it evident in all cases?

I realized that this is a known issue. first comment on the page talks of this. I wrote my custom exporter which does not truncate. But it would appear that the truncation happens for longer string fields.

I've made a patch which fixes this issue and created a github pull request (

Personally I'd love to see this in the 2.0.7 release. Is there anything else I can do to make this happen?

Thanks in advance,

I'm experiencing the same problem. Strings are being truncated at around 153 characters.

From my understanding of the code, the toString() function defaults to not "full", so the full parameter should be set to true as follows:

    return csvEscape(object.toString(false, true), true);

Could someone please confirm this is the case?
