I can add that by default

I can add that by default (for a Norwegian install at least), Excel exports CSV files with semicolon which makes them a bit tricky to import for Vuo. Maybe the separator list for the Fetch Table node should be expanded, or replaced by a custom separator instead?


Edit: This is based on a regional setting in the OS, but changing this will break other stuff, so I'd rather not deal with it. I can also see issues with tables exported and sent across different countries.
