French Version of Excel saving CSV Files with a semi-colon



When using a French version of Excel XP I am running into a problem with the
save as feature. I am attempting to save a contact list as a comma separated
file so users using older versions of office will be able to import the list
into outlook. When I try to save the file as a comma separated file it uses
a semi-colon instead of a simple comma. I believe this is strictly a
language issue and need to know if there is a fix or a setting I can change
somewhere. Please help

Try changing your windows list separator.

windows start button|control panel|regional and language options
regional options tab|click the customize button
On the number tab, change the list separator to a comma.

But many European users use a semicolon for this separator.
