if you have used excel, and you have moved any of the column sizes, excel gets upset about it. Just say you dont care and save it as csv anyway :D

then it gets even more upset and places rows A,B,C etc. all in row A and messes up the game!

excel is evil. it really wants you to save it as xls and not a csv. make sure its comma delimited, not tab delimited.
Or edit them using notepad, that will work, although its a lot harder ;(

You can use CSVed,freeware editor made for .csv files only.
It has many interesting features that make editing easier.
