I have a Excel file, that I want to export into a *.csv file.

As far as I know, .CSV files don't like commas, and my Access Metrics program is I thinking being choked by Hex numbers in the file, because EOF finds it in the middle of a file and chokes on it.

Am I thinking right ?

How to scan for chr$(9) ?

Thanks!

No it's not a Hex number.

It's a number expressed in scientific notation.

9.61380400579458 * 10^21

Where 10^21 equals 10 to the power of 21.
