Downloading AT&T Wireless Usage Data

Chris Espinosa:

Thing 1 I have learned about AT&T Wireless data plan usage download:

You can download you usage for Excel, and it downloads as an .xls file—but it’s XML, not BIFF.

Thing 2 I have learned about AT&T Wireless data plan usage download:

You can download you usage as a CSV file, and it’s saved by default as .csv—but it uses a vertical bar as the column delimiters, not a comma.

Thing 3 I have learned about AT&T Wireless data plan usage download:

When you finally get the usage data into a spreadsheet, the values in the Usage column represent either kilobytes or megabytes, on a row by row basis. There’s no scale indicator in the row data.

I wish I could say this was the first time I’ve seen mixed units in a column or a “CSV” file with no C’s.
