    probably a simple question , but i cant find instructions in the help manuals for excel.

    How do i import a comma seperated database into a new Excel spreadsheet , so that each comma seperated number goes into its own cell ???

    thankyou kindly for any instructions.

    (everybody has to start learning somewhere )

    If they were exported they should also show the column headings that were in the original db as well. All you have to do is go to File > Open and under file type select txt, csv and then just open the file. A wizard should then come up where you can define how and what is imported into Excel
