Thanks for lead with the quotes. It looks like the problem was two fold. When exporting to text, I needed to select the check box "quote all text cells".

Upon opening the .csv file, I needed to click the "quoted field as text" box in the text import prompt.

New question. When I selected the "quoted field as text" box in the import prompt, I never had to do this again. The setting was changed for future uses. However, when saving, the "quote all text cells" box is always unchecked. Is there anyway way I could make this the default setting?

Hey everyone,

I notice that Calc will sometimes change the value of a cell from a
period to a zero. I notice it mostly when I save from .ods to csv. This
is an issue, as one of the stats software programs I use denotes missing
data with a "."

Is there an auto-correct setting that I can change so that it will not
do this again?



A period without any digits gives a text value.
3 tab separated columns of text, date and decimal with points:

"a"    02/02/12    1.98
"."    03/03/12    12.5
"b"    "."    19
"c"    04/04/12    "."
