    I am using MoxierWallet and it exports my passwords etc into an .cvs file.

    Tried using Openoffice to read it, but when it opens it's really messy text and all over the place.

    What can I do?:eek:

    Any spreadsheet program can import csv files.

    Excel automatically interprets csv when opening them.

    Uncheck semicolon and space, and check comma.

    Well, csv stands for comma separated values ...

    It's the most common export method for data to be transferred between system types.

    I wonder why OpenOffice wasn;t smart enough to figure this out and open it properly for me? :eek:

    I guess that's part of the reason why Excel is the industry standard and not OO.
