Cannot successfully import csv

I have been searching on how to import products into Magento, trying everything I can think of.  I made sure the values are in “quotes” and that the csv file is saved in UTF-8.

This is a test product I am trying to import

"Default","123","TEST","12.95","6.95","Test Product IMPORT 1"

I have selected Default in the profile where it says “(Products will be added/updated to this store if ‘store’ column is blank or missing in the import file.)”

I have put the store attribute as the first attribute to map, but the attached image shows when I took it out of mapping, in hopes the profile would use the Default store selected in the above paragraph. (non-default mapping)

I have also tried exporting what I have in the store now so I can take the headers and change the import profile to use the default headers, without any luck.  I have even tried to import the just-exported csv and that didn’t even work.

This is the error I get, no matter what I try…

Starting profile executionplease wait...
