Afraid I'm not much help as I use the HANA chart, but did want to mention fyi, that you can make Sun not be a date by formatting it as text. Same with odds that format to dates.

That plea is 10 months old. Probably a little late.

I've been wrestling with uploading conditional wagers as CSV files.

Horses for exactas and doubles are to be entered as "#/#" (no quotes). Using Excel 2000, I format the horses column as Text and enter the exactas and doubles as instructed.

However, when I save the workbook as a CSV file, the horses column is automatically converted to date (d-mmm) format. (As well, the date column automatically converts from mm/dd/yy format to m/dd/yy format.)

Can you suggest something that will preserve the Text and Date formats that I need?

Thanks, CB. Little doubt that your solution is the right one ... but hope still springs eternal, etc.
