I have exported the CoA and wanted to import it after editing. I edited it in excel for Mac.

The system gives me the error message "Import preview failed due to: new-line character seen in unquoted field - do you need to open the file in universal-newline mode?."

Can somebody help?

Hi Eva, did you ever sort this out?
