SQL Server 2016 Data migration assistant exports unusable CSV
Exporting assessment report in CSV format produces number of text blocks that should be "text to columns" individually. "Feature recommendations" blocks produce message "there is already data there do you want to replace".
Report inside DMA interface not readable and not printable in any way.
Exported report repeats the same recommendations over and over again. Attaching an exported report sorted. 63 repetitions. Why it's necessary? One recommendation and all objects that affected, instead of every single objects and repeated recommendations for each object.
Using the latest version as of 20 nov. 2016

The current version of the DMA 3.4 exports reports to unusable json, but there is no summary or user friendly report that can be referenced or presented to non-technical people. A simple summary of issues and their category would be very helpful instead of having to run the DMA assessment to get a findings summary.There should be a much better format or selection of type of report, html, xml, pdf, or csv, etc. I have a 15.4MB json doc for a single database out of many.
