    Using Mac OS 8.6 and 9

    i have to FTP files to a company. they provided an excel sheet template. i have to change it to a csv flat-file and upload it to their server.

    they said there was a problems in the file. specifically:

    "newlines are from a mac (old mac version r) and should be unix (n)"

    how can i make it change to n?

    can i even do this?

    To ensure that the file has n (linefeed) line endings on the server (which, I gather, is not a UNIX server) you'd have to set the line endings to n while the file is on your Mac and upload it in Raw Data format. There are a number of programs that can change the line endings of a Mac file, including BBEdit.

    Thanks,
