That gets rid of everything.

I actually did that...there was a save as DOS cvs and text cvs - I tried both,
no change. I actually didn't do it since I don't have excel, but the person who
sent me the file said they did save it in 2 or 3 csv export options. Not sure if
there was one there called ascii CVS.
