I'd like to know where to get help on doing something that I used to be able to do all the time and now with this buggy release of Excel - I can't do it any more.  Excel thinks it is smarter than me and formats my "get Text" any way it desires and most of the time - it doesn't work for me and I can't change it!  The last upload I had to take a fixed length fields file and remove all the spaces and add commas so I could load it as a .csv file.  There has Got to be an easier way....
