How do I format checkbox field values in an XML DataGrab import? I should mention that this checkbox field is in a Matrix but I am not sure if that will affect anything.

I've tried using the usual PHP_EOL and pipes to separate multiple values but neither worked.

If you are using a normal, EE checkbox, you should just need to supply pipe-delimited values (eg, One|Two|Three).

If you are using a Field Pack checkbox, these aren't currently supported within Matrix fields, but I can add it pretty easily if you need it.

  • It is a Field Pack checkbox field. I thought I had updated my question with that information but I guess I didn't. Sorry about that! Also, this is for an EE 2.9.3 installation. Nov 10, 2016 at 14:38
  • Is this a quick change or should I just change the field type to a regular checkbox field? I don't believe it is crucial for us to stick with the Field Pack option in this case. Nov 10, 2016 at 14:44
  • Wait, the regular checkboxes field isn't supported in Matrix. So I am limited to using the Field Pack column type. Nov 10, 2016 at 17:02
