comment Why is Excel removing leading leading zeros when displaying CSV data?
Yeah, I was already looking for a CSV editor. I saw CSVEd. My initial impression is that it looks like a confusing ametuerish interface. I think "Tabular Text Editor" looks better. Thanks for your help.

comment Why is Excel removing leading leading zeros when displaying CSV data?
Here's a complication: After importing it as you describe, I then want the ability to modify the file and to save it back as CSV. It presents me with a convoluted ugly dialog box (c'mon microsoft-design a custom dialog form for this instead of using the MessageBox Windows feature!). I choice the option to "keep it in the same format". When I do so, it defaults to a tab separated format. To ensure that the txt file is saved with a comma separator, you have to change the file name extension back to "csv." Is this ugly of what? After 10 versions of Excel we have this?

My issue was that my file had a csv extension and the Import dialog never comes up. when I renamed the file to have a text extension, I was all set and knew where to go. ty.

Robert was not my aunt. :-) I thought I had success doing that before, but it didn't work. Try it. What confused me is why formating the cell as text does not result in the value "02" being dispkayed with a leading 0 left justified.

comment Giving a printer a more meaningful name
Looks like it may be a permissions issue: microsoft.com/resources/documentation/windows/xp/all/proddocs/…. Note though that I only want to change it for me, not for everyone.
