In CHIRP, if you have Duplex on, it uses the offset. If it is off, offset is ignored.

>> Glenn,
>> Thanks for the heads up about open office.  I have had issues with excel and open office working with csv files.  Did a little research trying to find a good csv editor and ran across this article:
>> How to open CSV files safely with Microsoft Excel
>> SupportAbility exports a number of CSV (Comma Separated Value) data files that can be used by other applications for invoicing, NDIS payment requests and other purposes.
>> THE PROBLEM
>> It is quite common for SupportAbility users to open these exported CSV files using programs like Microsoft Excel to check their contents before importing the file into a third party application such as MYOB.  However, when Microsoft Excel opens a CSV file, it attempts to interpret the data in that file and starts making changes to it.
>> For example, if Excel sees something in the CSV file that it identifies as a date (often incorrectly), Excel will change the date format in the CSV file to suit the way that it prefers to dates to be formatted.  Unfortunately, this generally has the unintended consequence of breaking the CSV file for the third party application that the CSV was specifically designed for.
>> THE SOLUTION
>> If you need to open a CSV file in Excel without breaking it, here's how to do it:
>> 
>>   1.  Open a new Excel sheet, select the Data tab, then click 'From Text' in the Get External Data group.
>>   2.  Browse to the CSV file and select 'Import'.
>>   3.  In step 1 of the Import Wizard choose 'Delimited' as the original data type. Click 'Next'.
>>   4.  In step 2 of the Import Wizard choose Comma as the delimiter (deselect the Tab check box) and click 'Next'.
>>   5.  In step 3 of the Import Wizard, you tell Excel not to change your formats. With the first column in the Data Preview selected, scroll across to the last column and select it while holding the SHIFT key (all columns should now be selected).  Then select 'Text' as the Column Data Format and click 'Finish'.
>>   6.  Click OK to insert the data into cell A1
>> You should now have a spreadsheet with the imported data but without Excel breaking the formatting required for the intended third party application.  Remember to export the file from Excel to CSV again before uploading to the third party application if you have made changes.
>> https://help.supportability.com.au/article/250-how-to-open-csv-files-safely-with-microsoft-excel

>> I will try this out when i get a chance and see if it will solve my issues so i can get all my radios programmed correctly.

With the first column in the Data Preview selected, scroll across to the last column and select it while holding the SHIFT key (all columns should now be selected).  Then select 'Text' as the Column Data Format and click 'Finish'. 
>>   6.. Click OK to insert the data into cell A1

When I exported my radio's memory data from CHIRP to a .csv file, I made a copy of it as an Excel file so I could add my own notes. I haven't touched the .csv file yet and may or may not get brave enough to do that and re-upload to the radio. :-) If I do, I'll edit that file in TextEdit instead of Excel.

>> SupportAbility exports a number of CSV (Comma Separated Value) data files that can be used by other applications for invoicing, NDIS payment requests and other purposes.
>> 
>> THE PROBLEM
>> 
>> It is quite common for SupportAbility users to open these exported CSV files using programs like Microsoft Excel to check their contents before importing the file into a third party application such as MYOB.  However, when Microsoft Excel opens a CSV file, it attempts to interpret the data in that file and starts making changes to it.
>> 
>> For example, if Excel sees something in the CSV file that it identifies as a date (often incorrectly), Excel will change the date format in the CSV file to suit the way that it prefers to dates to be formatted.  Unfortunately, this generally has the unintended consequence of breaking the CSV file for the third party application that the CSV was specifically designed for.
>> 
>> THE SOLUTION
>> 
>> If you need to open a CSV file in Excel without breaking it, here's how to do it:
>> 
>>   1.  Open a new Excel sheet, select the Data tab, then click 'From Text' in the Get External Data group.
>>   2.  Browse to the CSV file and select 'Import'.
>>   3.  In step 1 of the Import Wizard choose 'Delimited' as the original data type. Click 'Next'.
>>   4.  In step 2 of the Import Wizard choose Comma as the delimiter (deselect the Tab check box) and click 'Next'.
>>   5.  In step 3 of the Import Wizard, you tell Excel not to change your formats. With the first column in the Data Preview selected, scroll across to the last column and select it while holding the SHIFT key (all columns should now be selected).  Then select 'Text' as the Column Data Format and click 'Finish'.
>>   6.  Click OK to insert the data into cell A1
>> 
>> You should now have a spreadsheet with the imported data but without Excel breaking the formatting required for the intended third party application.  Remember to export the file from Excel to CSV again before uploading to the third party application if you have made changes.

>> Thanks All, I think I got it working.
>> 
>> I tweaked the CSV file, at one point, Open Office took out all the values in the offset column, so I opened another file in Excel that was about the same, and I selected the column and copied it and switched over to the file in Open Office and pasted it in.

I see in Chirp there is a setting for Duplex, but this doesn't appear to show up anywhere in the UV-5R. I have compared 462.600 simplex and 462.600 duplex and see no differences in the keypad menu system. if I was to setup a duplex channel manually, I am assuming I would have to set the offsets, etc., even though they show no differences on the UV-5R. Is there another trick I am missing?
