    Ya, you gotta tell Excel not to autoformat those values as dates.

    Usually I end up cutting and pasting into Notepad, saving as .txt then using the import wizard.

    I *think* you can turn off the autodate “feature” in Excel.

    Or you just hack the VBA to format those columns as text. Either way.
