in thread CSV to Excel

Like has been said you can open csv native in excel, or if you actually want to do anything else with the data, better off not converting into .xls...a quote comes to mind: "this is a dead end". Keeping the data in text or at least database format allows for transformations/munging. Excel can provide..uhm..pie chart. Avoid Excel (especially) for any number work where dollar amounts (or jobs) are at stake, as it's the only (supposedly serious) spreadsheet that uses floating point math for calculations.
the hardest line to type correctly is: stty erase ^H
