Ok.. i’ve read all the post about importing in the forums....

I created the first product in this csv file using the GUI…
the product shows up fine in my store and then

the second one I created based on the first…
the csv is below…

I get this when I “run the profile”

* Starting profile execution, please wait…
* Warning: Please don’t close window during importing/exporting data

* Starting Mage_Dataflow_Model_Convert_Parser_Xml_Excel :: parse
* Found 0 rows
* Starting catalog/convert_adapter_product :: parse

but no products show up in the admin whether I import using csv or xml

can someone check my file and maybe give me a hint as to what i’m doing wrong?
