Bug report #12796
Export Spatialite point layer to CSV fails on Geometry AS_XY

When exporting a Spatialite point layer via "Save as...", geometry is only exported when selecting "AS_WKT". When selecting AS_XY or AS_YX, only the attribute values are exported (see attached files).
When exporting from a Shapefile, the geometry is written correctly with the option AS_XY.

Yes, it is MULTIPOINT. Tested with POINT, and it works okay.
So I guess it's another problem. AS_XY doesn't work for MULTIPOINT. Question is how the multipoint layer was created - maybe related to the two related tickets.

Yes, QSpatialite seems to always (often unnecessarily) generate MULTIPOINT feature sets when importing from QGIS layers.
An error message would be helpful in any case (e.g. "Option AS_XY not supported for MULTIPOINT datasets").
I even think it would be possible to export MULTIPOINT data with AS_XY:
Write one line for every POINT, using the same attributes for every MULTIPOINT part
Add a column "MULTIPART ID" with distinct values für distinct features and shared values for all parts of a MULTIPOINT.
