Quick one. I'm uploading a tab-delimited file to a mysql database and the tab delimited file derives from an excel file.
In these Excel cells some of them have a comma (,) in. Now when I save the excel file as tab delimited it now puts quotes around the values that have commas in the cell?
Any idea how I can stop this happening?

Yeah, Excel's dumb that way. It quotes fields that have the comma in it even if you're not outputting a comma-separated file! You can just handle this on the way it.
Seriously... if people don't start reading this before posting, I'm going to consider not answering at all.
