We are using the following code to convert csv files to xls files
The problem is that sometimes the coversion fails to separate the data into individual cells and instead, puts all of the data into cell A1 of the newly created xls file...can we put something into line 5, the 'SaveAs' line,  to ensure that this does not happen?  (It should not matter but,  note that the new files are being created in Excel 2003, but the csv files may have been created with vba in either 03 or 07)
Thank you
Public Sub Convert_File(strCSVFile)
	xlApp.DisplayAlerts = False
	Set oCSVToConvert = xlApp.Workbooks.Open(strCSVFile, False, False)
	strConvertedName = Left(strCSVFile, Len(strCSVFile) - 4) & ".xls"
	oCSVToConvert.SaveAs strConvertedName, xlNormal
	oCSVToConvert.Close True
	xlApp.DisplayAlerts = True
	WScript.Sleep 1000
	objFSO.DeleteFile strCSVFile, True
End Sub
