I have this raw item.CSV file:

Name,Price,date
"item1",10,2012-11-21
"item1",10,2012-11-21
"item1",10,2012-11-21

I open it in Excel, it looks correct:

Then I clear all the data except the headers, and saved it:

enter image description here

Then I see those commas are there.

I don't want those commas staying there. How can I clear the data in Excel so that the commas are gone as well in the CSV?

Instead of clearing the data, have you tried deleting it?

Highlight those same 3 rows, right click and choose delete. Then save it.
