I having difficulty down loading the CSV formatted data into EXCEL. Any suggestions?

When I upload the CSV formatted data into EXCEL I get non alpha charactures in a single column. What is the best way to upload data into EXCEL?

The issue may be that your data extract includes more records (meaning rows) then Excel is able to hold in on spreadsheet. There are a number of ways to limit the size of your data extract. Since your particular issue is that there are too many records I would recommend using either the select cases feature or the custom sample size feature.
