I download financial information from Yahoo Finance.  The download is a CSV file format.    
Athought I am able to open it with MS Excel I am not able to open it using LO except as a text 
file.   Any suggestions on how I can open the file with Calc?
Thanks. Jeff                                    

I assume you are using Windows. If so, right click and select "Open
with" then select Calc if the file extension is csv. The csv import
wizard should start automatically. Alternately, open Calc and then
INSERT >>Sheet from File. The second method will allow to import *.txt
as well as *.csv files. Either way you should see a dialog box showing
the current import settings and a preview of the import. If the columns
are incorrect you can change the column delimiter. Common delimiters are
comma, semicolon, tab, and pipe (|).

If you have any dates, click on the "standard" above the date column and
select an appropriate date format. This will ensure the date is imported
as a date. Often dates are shown as 2013-26-05 00:00:00.
