Hi Uwe and all:

        I suggest:

a) Open the file as is: csv
b) Mark the column that content all the information
c) Use: Menu, Edit, Search and Replace ... click there
d) In the window opened: In the first row for input what to search,
input and "space" with spacebar
e) In the second row for input what to replace, keep without input
f) Apply the option Replace All
g) Now if all is good, you are eliminate the space after "name" field
h) Save the file again as csv
i) Now you can close the file and open again or use the option: Menu,
Data, Text to Column to split the fields in the column

I hope this help,


Jorge Rodríguez

I have an excel (xls) file which I open with scalc (5.3)
and save it as csv

Unfortunately it looks like


Instead of

"Name","05329954A ",0.55,0.75,1.3

The reason is that in the first column there is a after name a space
which is translated to a newline when exporting.

How can I get rid of this unwanted newline?
I tried to format the cells but it seemed not to have worked.
