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

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.
Clicked Import and changed the format to CSV

Any clues on what went wrong?
