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                                    

Simply open the file with LibreOffice Calc. Your operating system should
allow you to open a text file with any program able to handle text files.

From within the office:
1) File>Open... File type: Text(*.csv)
2) Calc-menu:Insert>Sheet from file...
Since you mention MS Excel, you might be a Windows user.
3) Drag the file icon into a Calc window.
4) Right-click the file icon and choose "Open with"> "LibreOffice Calc"
5) Drag the file icon onto a Calc icon
6) Issue a command scalc -exe MyFile.clv

... just to mention a few commonly known options how to load some file
into some application. There are still better ways to handle csv in this
office suite.
