Some of my CSV entries have double quotes

This will occur with Checkbox, Combobox, Dialogue List, or List Box fields if they hold multiple values. The simplest solution is to open the CSV file in a non-formatting text editor such as Notepad and do a Search and Replace on double quotes to turn them into single quotes. Re-save the CSV, and it will then open cleanly in Excel.
