Saving sheet as .csv 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?
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.
I have an application where I copy a sheet and save it as CSV. I found out an interesting feature about saving a file as CSV this way - what you see is what you get.
So if you have a date/time of 4/15/09 12:14 PM but DISPLAY the field in the spreadsheet as mm/yy/dd ONLY the date part will be saved in the CSV file. So, before I do the copy, I convert it into a number with a bunch of decimals.
However I don't seem to be able to fix another problem. My users have a tracking number that looks something like: 987654321 - if they make the column smaller, it looks like 9.8E+7 and that's what gets recorded in the CSV file. So when it comes back it comes back as 9.8E+7 and if they reconvert it back into a number, it comes out as 9800.
I'll have to figure out a way to turn this "feature" off.
The rest of you, beware, what you see is exactly what you get regardless of the underlying data.
I am trying to import some addresses into UPS world ship software. I need it
in the form of a CSV file. It does not accept excel as an import engine. I
have several addresses with zip codes which start with zero. I am able to
keep the zero in front of the zip code in Excel but when I go to save it as a
CSV file it drops the zero. World ship then rejects the record since it is
not a valid address. I need to find a way to have a zip code which starts
with a zero saved as a CSV file.
What would be the code for saving an excel file to a CSV.
