How to convert Excel file to CSV Question



I need to create a csv file from an Excel file.

I attempted to create one by using teh "save as" command. But when I do
the resulting document looks the same. I expected it to look like a
text file with commas separating the cells.

What have I done wrong?

The resulting document will look the same in Excel because Excel uses a
spreadsheet and her own environment to display the csv file. Try opening it
in Notepad or some other text editor -and try opening an ordinary xls file
in notepad to see the difference. Just stay away from the Save button.

HTH. Best wishes Harald
