I have a CSV file (not created with Excel.) If a user double-clicks
on the file, Excel wrongly guesses that it's not a true Comma-
Separated-Value file, but a fixed-width file. Thus to the user it
will display incorrectly.
How does Excel decide what to make it's first guess as to what kind of
file a CSV file is?
If I knew, I could probably tailor the file so Excel would guess
