When I make an alarm group report and export to csv, we see inconsistencies in formatting, that we cannot script and automate.

1. extra commas,,, 

2. spaces on 1 line that are not on the other. 

3. the date format does not zero fill all single digits e.g. 05/2/2017 instead of 05/02/2017 causing a difference with 05/30/2017 

however it does zero fill leading numbers 05/2/2017
