Means go back and read what Rashkae wrote. 

I've opened up my CVS list with 1,800+ records, with more than a dozen
fields each, using OOo. It's comma delimited. Go back and read what he
wrote you and do that. It's dead simple and will always work, if you
haven't ~played~ with the file. If you have run some script against it,
or tried to use some editor on it, you're dead in the water, no one can
help. Generate a fresh CVS file and work with that one. 

CVS is a very easy format to import. OOo has no problems with that, if
you do as he wrote a bunch of letters ago. This is why people are
starting to get on your ass, you ignore good advice. 

And, Noop is correct, this is not the Open Office forum. You may ask,
but no one has to reply. So, when you get a perfectly good response and
that isn't good enough, count on getting the lecture. Ric
