exporting issues

Is it possible to export issues by specifying the delimiter? For example we would like to choose comma and quotes as the delimiter and text qualifier.

I see that I am only able to export as an excel, xml and word document. Exporting as an excel is not ideal because Excel will convert stuff. For example, it converts 9223372036854770000 into 9.22337E+18.

One of our clients is providing us an excel export with almost 200 fields. Locating the fields that excel is changing and changing it to the correct format is not an idea solution.

Xporter for JIRA allow you to create custom Excel documents. Take a look.

You may create own plugin with servlet for export issues. 

In JIRA 7 only CVS export available, not Excel 

Or you may convert Excel to CSV after export, 9.22337E+1 is not real value, it is only external representation of data
