Dear Miranda, 

this is not really the answer to your question, but have you tried to
open the file with OpenOffice? As far as I know, you can choose the cell
separator before importing a file. You would have to make shure that
"comma" is deselected. Afterwards, you could save it as a conventional
xls-file that would be ready for excel.

Maybe this works.
