    A non-technically minded friend is attempting to use Serif WebPlus to create an E-Commerce site with Paypal integration. The problem is that all his stock is in Excel format which, although Serif claims they can handle, throws an error dialog with the helpful information that the worksheet or database does not have the required fields. Finally, after actually opening an actual "SDB" file in notepad I noticed that the Serif Database file IS a CSV file. The only difference? It comes with quotation marks around each field.
