Hi there,

I love the billing feature, yet the invoice export via the CSV format does not seem to work properly. When trying to import the CSV data into common spreadsheet programs like Excel or Calc (OpenOffice), the columns get messed up, e.g. invoice dates and descriptions entered in one column etc. I've tried all the possible tweaks for data import, but none works to distribute the data into different columns.

Since this has been noted before, is there a workaround?

Unfortunately, the one mentioned by Juho Karhu here
, i.e. converting the CSV to XML before importing to Excel, does not seem to work either.

I'd be most thankful for any ideas on this!
