This may relate to the other thread re: problems with conversion. I am trying to read a csv file in VBA. I am using the Input #1 command Mac conversions of csv within vba seem to use a 'space' as a value break point as well as commas. So a term such as "My Term" gets read as two separate fields. So quotes appear to be necessary when the value is more than one word, in addition to being necessary when there is a comma organic to the value (such as in "Jacksonville, FL"). I am having an additional issue decoding CSV data (which may actually be what is happening to the others): The "Enter" (line end) at the end of a row of values that contain quotes enclosing values (see above) is being picked up as the first character of the next value. How stupid is that? I can remove the Enter with vba code is like this: but I should not have to Converting csv files on a Mac is a real challenge. Is anyone else having similar experiences and do you have any suggestions?
