    I am trying to import sales using the batch orders command in my premier account. I can create the batch I want and it is presented in a web page as blahblahtext.csv. How can I make that a csv file ?

    One that I can then import into my spreadsheet. I have tried copy and pasting but thats just pastes exactly the same unreadable rubbish.
    I have searched this forum as was sure the answer would be here but cant find it.

    There is a radio button that says... "CSV text file" Make sure that is selected.

    I don't think it's rubbish, just a .csv file displayed on a page. If you view the source you'll find no html.

    You can cut and paste or save and import Did you set the field and text delimiters to match those used in your spreadsheet?

    Alright, never mind I have it sorted. In Openoffice you dont open or import it. You insert it. Makes a big difference.
