To upload an Excel spreadsheet into LON-CAPA, you must convert the Excel spreadsheet into a Comma Separated Value file (or CSV file for short) as follows:

  1. Open the spreadsheet in Excel.

  2. Choose File and Save As....

  3. Select CSV (Comma delimited)(*.csv) from the Save as type: drop-down menu, remembering where you save it.

  4. Click Save.

  5. Click Ok, or Yes for any windows that may appear in order to create the *.csv file.

You can then upload the CSV file generated, as described in Help.

Other spreadsheet programs can also export CSV files. Many of them follow procedures very similar to Excel. Consult your spreadsheet program's documentation for more information.
