comment Error messages in importing data file
Thanks. That works. Also I noticed an extra .csv that may have been confusing the program as to the file type.

comment Error messages in importing data file
I tried 'SetDirectory["C:\\Documents and Settings\\IW\\My \ Documents\\Download"] ; FileNames[]` but got the error message SetDirectory::cdir: Cannot set current directory to C:\Documents and Settings\IW\My Documents\Download. >> Per Mathematica this means there is no such directory. Interestingly, it did output the list of folders under My Documents folder including Download as if it could only go so deep.

comment Error messages in importing data file
It seems to be a problem with Mathematica reading non-Mathematica files on my computer. I tried moving to another drive, e.g., Import["VDS.csv", Path -> "C:\\Documents and Settings\\IW\\My Documents\\Downloads"] but failed. Does the failure of the following example (from Mathematica 9.0 Documentation on Path) dir = $TemporaryPrefix;Put[47!, ToFileName[{dir}, "fact"]] provide a clue? The error message was OpenWrite::noopen: Cannot open C:\Documents and Settings\IW\Local Settings\Temp\m\fact. >>
