If this is in the wrong forum, I apologize, and ask that it be redirected to the correct place. This simply seems to be the best match so far as I can tell.
Does anyone know what kind of formatting is used by Excel? I have been requested to create copies of one of our web reports in comma-separated value (csv) format for my boss to use while out in the field; he would get them on his Blackberry and view them there. However, it turns out that whatever software he's running will not allow him to use a plain .csv file, but apparently will allow him to read .xls files. Thus, in order to do what I've been requested to do, I think I'm going to need a way to make my own output (plain-text csv files) at least mimic the formatting on Excel, and would like to know some suggestions as to how this might be possible.
Or, alternately, if anyone knows of a way to get the Blackberry's program (sorry, I don't know yet what it is; I'll be trying my best to find out) to read a normal .csv file, I would appreciate hearing that as well.
Thank you for your time,
