Thank you for your answers. Let me however make some comments:
1- the csv file was generated with Excel 2007; no prompts for what the
separator should be; Excel has used ";" by default, without asking
2- about capitalisation, I used the var "spamReader" because I just
copy/pasted from the official python site:
3- when I try
>>> sheet = [row for row in spamReader]
>>> print sheet
all I get is an empty list; something seems not to be working properly
Same result list: I get an empty list
sheet = list(spamReader)
Thank you again for your help, which is highly appreciated.
