Export File Name only shows ID # not actual text name

I am wanting to export the list of data from the table on the post list. I have a column that is an ACF field for an file. In the list on the admin side it shows the actual file name but when I export the list the text file name is replaced with its ID.

Any way to change this to export to correct thing?

The following snippet will give you the file name in the exported file.

 * @param $value  string
 * @param $id     int
 * @param $column AC\Column
function ac_export_acf_file_url( $value, $column, $id ) {
	if ( $column instanceof ACA\ACF\Column\Post && 'file' === $column->get_acf_field_option( 'type' ) ) {
		$value = strip_tags( $column->get_value( $id ) );
	return $value;
add_filter( 'ac/export/value', 'ac_export_acf_file_url', 10, 3 );

You can put this code in your functions.php or some other place where you manage your custom code.
