Text to columns missing last row

I just moved our users to Office 2013 and one of my users says that when he tries to do a text-to-columns conversion it converts all but the last row.  He's tried this on a number of queries dumped out of our ERP, but always with the same result.

Does anyone know why this might be happening?

Maybe the ERP is dumping the last row differently formatted?

If he selects just that last row and performs the TEXT to COLUMNS, does it work as expected?

Never mind, we found the problem.  The ERP was adding a blank row at the top which was throwing everything off by one row.
