[chirp_users] help importing file

I have tried changing the column headers to match those in the stock files. When I do it seems to recognize the file but it then says no channels found. If I change the location column back to channel it does not recognize the file. Why can't find any channels? Does the order of the column matter?
Here are the column headers:
Location	Frequency	    Offset	Duplex	Mode	Name	Show Name	Tone Mode  	Tone	  DCS	Tx Power	    Skip	   Step
Thanks for the help,
Jeff

 'Back in the day' I
 thought one of the issues with using Excel to 
 process csv file and Chirp was that Excel
 tended to truncate trailing 
 commas for
 empty fields whereas Chirp was a stickler for those being in
 
 place to make the columns line up
 correctly.
 
 Am I
 misremembering or have either of those issues been
 improved?
