Exported (CSV) data opens as a webpage instead of a file

When using certain browsers, you can open a CSV data file and it will open as a website instead of a file. To correct this, please do the following:

Apple Safari

  1. In Safari, with the CSV file opened, click File > Save As
  2. At the bottom of the pop-up, click "Format:" and change this to "Page Source"
  3. Click Save

Google Chrome

  1. View the file contents in Google Chrome
  2. Click File > Save As, select CSV file

Now you can open this file in Excel to explore your data.
