Here it comes again - the EXCEL issue...

In several posts, I have seen:

Microsoft Excel insists on surrounding any exported field that contains a
comma with quotes, even for TAB-delimited exports. Set the EXCEL attribute
to 1 to fix this on import:

    Database products EXCEL 1

However, in 4.6.4, I do not see anything like this, and in fact one poster
mentioned that he tried adding it anyway and it caused errors...

For 4.6.4, what is the BEST way to get data from EXCEL to an acceptable tab
delimited text file?

Thanks in advance...
