Basically got a csv file that has 400 mac addresses in it , but i need the macs to look like 00-22-44-66-88 . So a macro to edit the cvs file or something.

macs are stored in the first column of the cvs file.

do u have any other columns in the csv?
do u have header in the csv?

if the file is just list of mac addresses then u can use this PS script:
$csv = gc c:\temp\result.csv
$csv | %{
	([regex]::matches($_, '.{2}') | %{$_.value}) -join '-'
} | sc c:\temp\result.csv
