Only delimited or fixed length file formats can be imported.

The most common format is a CSV (Comma-Separated Value) format. From most programs, you can save a file in CSV format by doing the following:

 


    • Open the file and then select File, Save as from the menu bar.
       
    • Select the Comma-Separated-Value (.csv).
       


    Note: Saving the File as type CSV does not replace the original Excel file.

    Other possible file formats include IMP, TXT, and PRN.
