Although you can choose to download a Grade Center file as a .xls file that opens directly in Excel, you will need to save the file as a .csv (comma-dilimited) file before uploading it back to Grade Center.

To do this:

  • In Excel, go to File -> Save As...
  • From the Save As Type dropdown menu, select "CSV (comma-dilimited)"
  • Click Save

**Using Excel in MS Office 2007:

  • Click the Office Button
  • Go to Save As -> Other Formats
  • From the Save as Type dropdown menu, select "CSV (comma-dilimited)"
  • Click Save
