Reading the link, I second the procedure of working on the spreadsheet
format then saving as csv. I suspect they are uploading to a database
using a script that expects a Windows end-of-line only (or they think it
will only take a Windows end-of-line).

Looking at this :
gives a list on how to structure the file and hints on what to do if
your CSV submission fails, e.g. if leading zeroes get dropped or if
NULL/0 values get replaced with nothing (as is the case with
LibreOffice). The solution to those particular problems is to enter
the data as a text string (by putting a leading apostrophe, for example).
That same page also recommends not working on your CSV file directly,
and in particular not to re-open it in your spreadsheet program (Excel
cited in that particular case) !!
Try passing the spreadsheet back and forth they due a final save to csv
on the Windows machine.
I have see the character encoding go wacky and have to be reset to
properly import a csv into Calc on occasion. Excel may be expecting a
different character set than UTF-8.
