    Hi,

    I was able to figure this out.

    The problem that most people will run into is that they will use Excel to easily manage their CSV in rows and columns. However saving a CSV (although it is a dropdown format) from Excel is the problem.

    Workaround: Just copy the contents from your excel file or CSV to a Google Docs Spreadsheet. The when you have the data you want, download from Google Docs the csv file.

    Import this file and....

    Hej presto!

    If you need to use excel, use the "windows comma separated" csv format, instead of the default or ms-dos. That seemed to work for me.
