Is it normal that the hourly values exported with a .CSV file (excel compatible) shows the date, time and power in the same excel cell?

I want to use only the power values and it is very time consuming to separate them manually, does anybody knows a method to obtain date, time and power in separate cells?

I've been doing it this way:

1) export .CSV with a TAB separator rather then ;

2) open .CSV with notepad, select all and copy

3) paste into excel

This is separate the date and power outputs into separate cells

EXCEL doesn't recognize the separator characters by itself.

You have to tell him how to import the CSV file.
In the "Data" group, choose "Convert" and follow the instructions. This will dispatch the values in their columns.

Now a problem may arise with the dates: they are not interpreted by EXCEL in the same way in all countries.
Please pay attention of choosing the right format (DD/MM/YYYY in Europe, MM/DD/YYY in the US), when defining the output file.
