Hi Bob

Not here, I'm afraid.  If I clear all separator boxes, the tabs show up
between the fields, but they aren't the problem.  In your email, the
transactions are split over three or four lines, and that is a no go.
That is how they appear in the spreadsheet, too.

Is your original file like that, or is that email formatting gone mad?

If it's just the email, that's OK, but if your file is like that, could
you send a copy to me as an attachment please.
