Issue exporting Rich text custom field in ADO

Copper Contributor

Hello, I need suggestion with ADO custom fields. When I try to export CSV of work items that has a custom field of type "Rich text", it would bring along the HTML tags with the data. Below is an example

<div> Null value \&nbsp;TEXT<br> </div>

If anyone have ever come across this and have a workaround/solution to avoid exporting HTML tags, please suggest the same.
Thank you very much in Advance!

To my understanding, HTML tags embedded is the expected behavior and it will cause an issue when re-importing the exported csv file, thus the formatting elements are kept in the exported output
