Error running .cvs files in Excel

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Can you please help me regarding .cvs files? If you scroll through it, the error will just pop up that says, "Microsoft Office Excel has encountered a problem and needs to close” and out of the application. My computer system has 2GB RAM with Office 2007 installed on it and some add-ons like Excel Visual Studio Design, Time Adaptor, Access Data Transfer, and TFC Office Shim. This only happens with .cvs files. I don’t want to convert the .cvs files to .xls, Can you please help me on this?

Error running .cvs files in Excel


It seems that the excel program is having a problem reading the .csv files, you will make sure that you are saving the files in the compatibility format. If you need the .csv files converted to the .xls format the follow the procedure below:

First you will need to open the .csv files, but in case they cannot be opened you  will need to look for the workbook that has the excel files.

  • Once you have opened the file, click file on the excel menu and then choose save as.
  • Choose other formats from the options.
  • In the save as window, give the document a file name to save it with and then choose the .xls format from the list of formats.
  • Choose the location for saving the file and then save it.

You will have converted to the .xls format.
