Hi
I prepared a structure of a survey.
I try to modify file CSV in the name and the author but when I upload the file in a new survey something comes wrong!
The "Survey import summary" appear without numbers of question and any data appears...
Previously the file work fine. I modified it with excel and openoffice.
Please help me!

1. Which Limesurvey version do you use?

2. Does export and import without opening the file work fine?

3. Are there any error messages?

4. Do never use Excel to open/edit .csv files!

That's the reason we always recommend to use raw text editors like notepad instead of Excel which breaks the internal file structure.
