It would be a lot of work. I think the save is useful as it stands. Now that even libre office can handle a million rows, it is easily to delete the columns not needed. The program is a very sharp knife. I am working with dates myself because I use it on a church database as well as my economics association for which it was originally written. I don't find it too confusing but I carefully only update records/fields that are required. There is NO guarantee that a CSV structure can round-trip the contents of any potential CB field.

maybe put into the readme or in the component itself somwhere these helpful hints such as importing rows as text. Most people (even pros like me) will download the CSV, make changes, and then upload without thinking. Thus changing passwords and dates.

CB 2.3, CBsubs 4.3, PHP 7.1, J! 3.9.X
