You will see a message "Your data has been downloaded. Please click here to open the file."  Click on the Link and Save the file to a temporary location for Pre Processing.

Pre Processing

The *.csv file format is tricky to work with because it creates the possibility that ambiguous dates can be misinterpreted during processing.  Follow these steps to prevent this error.

Method 1.  Run Excel from your Windows Start Menu. Do not click on the csv data file that you've just downloaded.

Data menu - Get External Data - From Text

Pick the file

Import, Delimited, Next, Delimiter = comma, Finish

Method 2.  You can follow a similar process by double-clicking on the file to open it, then running Data - Text to Columns on the first column.

For either method, save as a *.xls file to prepare for import into ManagingEnergy.
