@kennethbl so when you imported the ACF field group containing a text field the value of that field instead came out as an array..?
Did you have any previous meta fields in the site you imported to that might’ve had the same field name? (saves to same name in wp_postmeta).
Did you check the imported field group to see that everything looked fine?
