Re: [nbos] AS2 Mass Editing

I opened it up in note pad and there are no Quotes only commas.

I used the plugin Export CSV and it does it in three seperate files. I edit the bodies and then try and import it and there is NO info.

Is there some other way to export and import?

You might want to check your CSV file in a text editor. Sometimes
spreadsheets (OpenOffice does this, MSOffice might) will add quotes to
entries in the CSV, so instead of getting

1,foo,bar,baz,bax,etc

you get

"1","foo","bar","baz","etc"

AS2 won't import with the quotes, so you'll need to edit the CSV further
- a simple find/replace will work - in order to get it AS2 compliant.
