Problem Opening Exported Data from Hydraulic Gradeline

If exporting data from the Hydraulic Gradeline utility the resulting .xls file will not open in Excel 2016 giving messages similar to:-

To obtain a file that will open in Excel 2016 when saving select the “Comma delimited text file (*.txt)” option rather then the default "Excel files (*.xls)" and change the file name extension to ".csv". This file will open in Excel.
