    The power you need to cleanse, filter, sort, reshape, manage and analyze data from CSV files.

    Working from Notepad++ gave me an idea of how the text strings should be manipulated from VBA. The first thing to do from the VBA CSV interface will be to import only the fields that contain the relevant data to solve the problem (the_geom and NAME). The files created in this step (temporary) will be saved in the same folder.
