Perfmon.xla not working with my csv files

Hi,

I'm trying to generate some nice graphs for a bunch of performance data I logged w/ Perfmon.

I've loaded the perfmon.xla into Excel 2003, I select Planning > Open > my.csv

and I get the following error:

Not a valid PerfMon CSV file. Make sure the file ends in the extension .CSV or it may not be properly parsed.

I've opened the CSV in Excel and all the data is there from perfmon, is this possibly something to do with perfmon.xla not designed to work with the windows 2003 perfmon?

If so... is there another alternative to generate the graphs?

I figured out the best way was to just load the csv into the System Monitor and save as html using the graph perfmon generated...
