Keeping Formatting from Excel to a CSV file
I have files that need to be uploaded to our operational software using the .CSV format. When I receive the initial file, it is in excel format and thus needs to be converted. Problem is that some of the cells being uploaded contain characters saved as a "Text" formatted cell and are converted to whatever excel thinks it should be when changing to .CSV.
For example. A cell could contain 3981-5-19 and with a cell format of "text". When the file is converted to .CSV, the cell now would read 5/19/3981 or 19-May. I need the original formatting to stay when I convert the file, otherwise the item isn't recognize in the .CSV upload to our operational software.
I am working in excel and need to import into Sage. I can create the CSV file that is required but I lose the leading zeros from certain text columns/fields when I convert to from excel to CSV (for example 025 becomes 25). How can I overcome this. If I edit the CSV file in Notepad will this do the trick. If it does, this will be OK for the odd item, but I may need to do it for hundreds of items in the same column/field and this is impractical
I have had to place all my information from a word document to a csv file.
However, I notice that the formatting is not saved and the content appears in lines without any line or para breaks. The formatting is very important in the project. Each time I try to reformat, it goes back to the "non-formatted" look. Does anyone know how I can save the formatting options in a csv file?
I have a CSV file that I paste data into to is uploaded to a server.
Column 1 is titled "EmailAddr_" is where I paste email addresses to.
Column 2 to titled "ExpireDate_" is where I paste a date and time. It looks like this:
I formatted column 2 to text so it doesn't get reformatted to something else.
When I try to save the file, Excel tells me that " the filename may contain features that are not compatible with CSV (comma delimited). Do you want to keep the workbook on this format?
When I reopen the file, my formatting is lost and column 2 is displayed like so:
*Wont let me upload a CSV file, so its a zip file
when saving an XLS file as CSV, it's not keeping the decimal places intact. I need a CSV file with 2 decimal places(ie: .00). Any ideas on why this is happening?
