GPX conversion

I use POI Edit. Call up the gpx file and do a save as and it will convert it to a csv file. POI Edit is a freebie you can obtain off the internet.

Ok, I've loaded up a .gpx

Ok, I've loaded up a .gpx file into POI edit and I can see all the values. How do I convert/save it as a .csv file? I tried and it looked like it worked, but I get an error when I try to open the Excel file. And it tries to open in POI edit, not Excel.

Several possibilities:
First, a csv file is not an Excel file, it's a 'comma-delimited text file'.

(I'm assuming Windows OS) You probably had Windows set to open a csv file with Excel. When you installed POI Edit, it possibly changed the default program to open a csv file to POI Edit.

You can either change this default back to Excel or change it to NotePad; or you can use the right-click on the csv file and select 'Open With...', then select Excel.

Bada bing, bada boom... You

Bada bing, bada boom... You nailed it RT! Thanks again. It did default to a POI edit file and "open with" Excel shows all the data correctly.
