Default compatibility issues with Vista

My customer is starting to upgrade their pc's to Windows Vista. In the past,
under XP and using Excel, they provided a tab-delimited file as input to my
inkjet system that uses Windows 98. No problem!

Now under Vista, using Excel (2007) I can read the file, but it doesn't
recognize it as tab-delimted, this not formatting correctly. I open in XP
on my pc, import into EXcel and then output as tab-delimited and it still
won't work. I put it out as CSV and it is fine.

The only problem using CSV is there is a comma in the City State field that
must remain and it gets dropped even though it has quotes. My vendor admits
it is a bug in their system and the workaround is tab-delimted.

Does anyone know of, or experiencing any compatibility issues with
tab-delimited files?

Thanks,

Bob

Your problem isn't one that this group is qualified to answer. You need to
ask in an Excel 2007 group.
