I am having trouble trying to load my Yeasu FT 8800, I get a error message each time. I downloaded the drivers for the cable and am using a MacBook Pro. Any suggestions?

I am using Excel now to edit the CSV files and they import fine.  Is it true that there has to be a default value in rToneFreq?  And what about the errors I get when there are columns with header text but no data in the column?  Could this be caused by Excel?
