I posted elsewhere that CSV files that I've created in StrongED open in 
StrongED. However I also export CSV files from address books in Organizer 
to use to send MailMerge emails using ImpEmail, and these files open 
Fireworkz with the data in a spreadsheet. The only difference between the 
files is that the ones from Organizer tend to have a first line saying for 
instance, First name,Surname, Email. However, I can't see how that would 
make any difference as to how the computer would know which app to open 
the file with.

All very mysterious.
