    I'm trying to use the Icom CS-5100 programming software but cannot get it to import a CSV file. All I get is "illegal data" error. Anyone have similar problem or a fix for the problem?

    Same for me, have successfully imported data numerous times, now this morning all of a sudden "illegal data" and the useless help file has no mention of it... at lease when you "search" or "index" in the "help?" file.

    One would think there is a cell or cells of inaccurately formatted data but I've only made an edit to a single entry, on a previously working *.csv file.

    Anybody know what "illegal data" means in the CS-5100 software?

    Update: Solved my issue with the "illegal data" when I realized... when I was transferring my data from my OpenOffice Calc spreadsheet to a generic "IMPORT.csv" file... I was omitting the header; or, very top row, that which contains "[Group No] [Group Name] [Name]" etc.

    As I was suspecting, typical bonehead database mistake... if we were flying RC airplanes... this would be a "dumb thumb" move.

    Hope this may help someone else with the same issue.
