Your Excel has been misconfigured to read CSV as SYLK - you need to tell it that this is a CSV file, not SYLK.

Actually,  If the first two characters of the file are uppercase ID Excel assumes it's an SYLK file type.

The file I got from JIRA Audit Log containing exactly ID column :-)

not sure this is excel misconfigure, but for sure that's annoying as I just export, open, then deal with the error :-) 

Yeah, that's a bug in Excel.
