Jgermann came across a thread on Rand McNally POIs. Thought this ought to be in FAQs.

(Disclaimer: I do not own a Rand McNally and am getting my information from the internet. I am doing so because I took over some POI files that had been "orphaned" and they had both Garmin and Rand McNally files. Bear in mind I am learning as I go, but hope to provide information that will be useful to others)
Microsoft Excel can read .csv files, but so can many other programs. When Excel is installed on your computer, it automatically associates the .csv extension with Excel. This is why the files show with an Excel icon.
If you look closely at the icon, you'll notice it's slightly different than the icon that's normally used for Excel spreadsheets / workbooks.
