As previous contributors have mentioned, when creating a CSV that you plan to read back, you do need to enclose your data in double quotes if there is a chance it will contain spaces or commas. I normally achieve this by using CHR$(34) fun...

In my case the INPUT statement reads: INPUT #1, road$, house$, lono$, hino$, oe$, losuf$, hisuf$ The CSV file c...
