How to create the annual self-classification report in .CSV file format

The table in this sample annual self-classification report  provides an example of the various fields required within the Annual Self-Classification Report as required per Supp. 8 to Part 742, section (b) and demonstrates how various instructions & tips published in Supplement 8 to part 742 works out in practice.
-    First line of the annual self-classification report must consist of the following 12 entries: PRODUCT NAME, MODEL NUMBER, MANUFACTURER, ECCN, AUTHORIZATION TYPE, ITEM TYPE, SUBMITTER NAME, TELEPHONE NUMBER, E-MAIL ADDRESS, MAILING ADDRESS, NON-U.S. COMPONENTS, NON-U.S. MANUFACTURING LOCATIONS.
-    No entry may be left blank.
-    PRODUCT NAME and ECCN must be completed.
-    For MODEL NUMBER and MANUFACTURER, if necessary, enter "NONE" or "N/A".
-    For AUTHORIZATION TYPE, enter ENC or MMKT.
-    For ITEM TYPE, pick from the list of item types provided in the Supp. 8 to Part 742 (a)(6).
-    Column headers SUBMITTER NAME through NON-U.S. MANUFACTURING LOCATIONS relate to the company as a whole, and thus should be entered the same for each product (i.e., only one point of contact, one ‘YES’ or ‘NO’ answer to whether any of the reported products incorporate non-U.S. sourced encryption components, and one list of non-U.S. manufacturing locations, is required for the report). Duplicate this information into each row of the spreadsheet
-    The only permitted use of a comma is the necessary separator between the 12 entries for each line item. The only commas allowed are the ones inserted automatically during spreadsheet conversion.
-    An encryption self-classification report data table created and stored in spreadsheet format can be converted and saved into a comma delimited file (.CSV) format directly from the spreadsheet program.
