I'm not sure what you are doing wrong. Do the three columns end up in different columns (different cells) in Excel? If not, then you are importing it wrong (perhaps selecting tab delimited instead of comma).

I attached a sample showing it working. I simply typed in the first two rows of numbers you posted and then clicked on the column header for A (which highlighted the whole column) and selected Format-Cells, then picked Date from category and one of the date types.

You can't modify it while DAQFactory is using it. So you either need to quit DAQFactory, or set the logging set file to a different file so DAQFactory releases the file. DAQFactory can't let you open it while it is editing for optimization reasons.
