But like Vog i'm stumped on this one:

i) What's an excel price file
ii) What has just buying excel on it's own got to do with CSV question (same sentence) !?!

Let us know what you want to know and we can help!

surely you just need to select *.csv in the filetype from the saveas dialogue?

an excel price file is supplier cost prices usually using part number, description, cost. most of our suppliers send new updates in excel, however we can only use csv to update our operating system, so you see i need to be able to convert excel to csv, ps i don't have excel, only the reader.

FE> I think he was asking if he can do it without excel. You can save an excel spreadsheet to csv from within excel if you have it anyway without any add-in (although if there is a high volume, that tool might help).

A quick google search for 'convert xls to csv without excel' revealed the following. They have a free trial. I haven't tried it but it has to be worth a look:
