Default how to open .csv files?

Please Login to Remove!

How can I open .csv files that are sent as attachments. I get reports sent automatically from an app that only saves them as a .csv and I cannot find a way to open them on my BB. I've looked at a few add on software options but none of the ones I've found open .csv files.

Any ideas?

csv stands for comma seperated values and will open with Excel on a computer. Not sure about on BB.

Try GridMagic's app - GridMagic for BlackBerry - Excel Compatible BlackBerry Spreadsheet

They also have a community version, which is free, with some features disabled. I've used it and have been happy with how it works.

Another thumb up for GridMagic - I can't believe they have a free version, it's well worth paying for, so I did.
