Hi list

My wife needs to submit *.csv files to the UK HMRC dept however, they request that these are sent as *.csv ms-dos format.

Having saved a calc sheet as a *.csv file, she tested this by opening it up with MS Excel, and found several errors that made the file unreadable.

How can I advise her to save spreadsheets as *.csv formats in a way that HMRC can read these as if saved in the MS Dos CSV format (which LibO doesn't have the option to do)? Is there something in the save procedure that she needs to attend to?

Thanks for any help, because it will be important to get this right as I have just (successfully) advocated that the charity she works for adopts LibO in favour of MS Office. If the HMRC cannot read CSV files saved in LibO, then this will be a deal breaker for the charity as they have to submit such files regularly.
