 Thanks.  I finally got it to work.  I had to delete the first 3 lines which was APRS and calling frequencies.  All the repeaters imported after I did that.

 Hi Chris,I learned that Excel is not keeping the commas in the CSV file.You might try using something like Open Office to import your file, edit it, and save it.I believe Chirp will only use the columns it can use, so if there erroneous columns, I'd try leaving them before you import the file back.HTH.Glenn----- Original Message ----- From: Christopher Ludwig via chirp_users To: chirp_users at intrepid.danplanet.com Sent: Wednesday, May 01, 2019 11:54 AMSubject: [chirp_users] Unable to import csv file
I am a long time user of Chirp, but I've never had a need for support so I just finally joined this list.  I have a Baofeng UV-5R that I downloaded my old memories from successfully, then exported to a csv file.  I then put that csv file into excel to edit it and save it back as a csv.  I've done my best to preserve the format, but I couldn't import the editied csv successfully.  After that, I started removing unused columns and such in an effort to get it to import.  No such luck.  Can anyone tell me what I screwed up with the csv format?
