Is there any way to import a .csv from the oxwall 1.5.3 to oxwall 1.6?

The plugin gives a unknow upload error.

I made a .csv from the database of oxwall 1.53

I tried this plugin (http://www.oxwall.org/store/item/39) on a 1.6 (SkaDate Lite) site and it did not create a CSV file.  My goal is to use the Contact Importer with a CSV file, but I can't find any info on the proper file format or options.  Any help would be appreciated.

I found the solution to the issue I was having.  When you save a .csv file from Excell on a Mac it does not place the end of line indicators correctly.  I imported my data into a Google Doc Spreadsheet and then exported a .csv file, which worked correctly.

I also needed to scroll down on the import tool field options to see all of them.  They are as follows:

About, About My Match, Birthday, Body Type, Body Type, Drinking, Drinking, Email, Ethnicity, Ethnicity, Eye Color, Favorite Way to Spend Time, Favorite Way to Spend Time, Gender, Hair Color, Here For, In My Own Words, Looking For, Match's Desired Age, Password, Real Name, Should Search For, Smoking, Smoking, Username
