excel 2007 csv gibberish
I have a csv with 290,00 rows that I actually saved from a SQL 2005 query.
The rows are all in the csv file.
When I open my excel 2007 sheet and try to import I am getting the 65536 limitation form excel 2003.
I need to save file to csv format to transfer to website.2003 always worked fine - 2007 doesn't -
I did some formating in excel 2007 csv in order to rein port easily back into sas and am now having problems:
I formated a field filled with numbers into a txt field and the leading zeros did not appear. I need those leading zeros for the data set.
I formatted another numbers field to text but then when they appeared in SAS they were in scientific notation.here the issue is 2 fold.get back the complete number and keep it in txt.
I'm using Windows Vista X86 and Word 2007 and I'm trying to save a workbook
in the CSV file format. Everytime I save, it gives an error saying the file name.csv may contain features that are not compatible with CSV (Comma delimited). I was wondering if I would lose data or if data would be corrupted because of this?
In Excel 2007, when I save a .xlsx file as a .csv file, it give me the standard warning about some features not compatible with .csv format and I hit ok and save the document. My question is this:
When I save as a .csv and then close out of excel completely, I get the same message and then it asks to override the .csv with another .csv of the same name. I never thought anything of it. BUT, if I save and then close only that document (not all of excel) then it does NOT ask the same question again.
There is a difference in file size when save these two different ways. WHAT IS HAPPENING THAT CAUSES FILE SIZE LOSS?
I can't understand why there is a difference in these two ways of doing the exact same thing.
Please, any insight would put my mind to ease.
