Important note about the CSV files

We have saved the spreadsheets as CSV files so that they can be easily read in a variety of applications. However the CSV format uses a standard column width and not all entries may be completely visible. To view all the data, you will need to expand the columns. You can do this by selecting all the tds in the file (the grey box beside column A and above tr 1), and then clicking on Format / Column / AutoFitSelection.
