Importing a CSV file

I have tried to import an Excel SS that I converted to csv.  First I go to "file import" then change the file type to "text delimited" and then go to the folder where I have placed the file to be imported. This is where the issue is.  I cannot see the "csv" file in the folder where I created it when trying to view it through ACT.  It only appears when I look for it out of the ACT software.  Any suggestions to what I might be doing wrong.  I do have an unsupported version of ACT and this could have something to do with it.  Thanks.

The file extension needs to be TXT for ACT! 6, not CSV.

Re: Importing a CSV file

When you are in the import window, and you Browse to locate the file, be sure to change the file type in the bottom of the Open window. Change from Text (*.txt to Comma Separated Value (&.csv).
