Not enough information to be 100% sure what is wrong, but the most common 
problem with CSV files is an incorrect number of commas, especially the 
trailing commas at the end of each line. Excel is terrible about not putting 
all the necessary commas on the end of a line -- Excel reads such files 
fine, but Chirp and many other programs insist on having all the columns 
accounted for.

OK

Update time

To the image file from the radio into Chirp

Exported a CSV file.

Opened that with Excel

Opened the RT file as a CSV in Excel

Took columns from the RT CSV file and place them into the F8HP file image 
only inserting into the compatible columns.

Saved as a CSV DOS compatible file.

Opened Chrip

Clicked Import and changed the format to CSV

Error : No Channels Found.

Any clues on what went wrong?
