Spreadsheet that does CSV

I am looking for an inexpensive spreadsheet to work with Trip and PalmPilot.  It needs to be able to import a text file where the fields are separated by commas (Comma Separated Values).  As far as I can determine, ClarisWorks 4.0 does not do this.  Excel does but I don't care to buy that big of a program for a simple little task.  I have tried a couple of shareware programs but no luck.

Try SpreadSheet 2000 from Cassidy & Green. http://www.casadyg.com/C&G/welcome2.html I believe it will do CSV. Other than that, you may be stuck with Excel. Try to find an older version (3 or 4). All versions of Excel will do CSV.

Hope this helps.

I tried  S2000.  It is an interesting program but I could not find anyway to do CSV.  The documentation only refers to tab delimited files for importing data.  If I can find an older version of Excel, I'll give that a try.  In the meantime, I am still looking for other shareware or anything else readily available.

One thing you could try, use a Text Editor like BBEdit Lite, search and replace the commas ',' with Tabs. Then use SS2000 to import the Tab-delimited file. It takes very little time to do this.

OK, if I have no other choice, I'll go with this until I find a cheap copy of Excel.
