The pick and place export is all messed up.
The first pic (Pick and Place selections.jpg) shows the selections I chose to include.

The second pic (File Created.jpg) Shows the file output.

The export file contains columns that haven't any definition or meaning.
Others are out of order.
I am on widows 11 as of today.

I tried the export on an older version and on a windows 10 machine and the output file is correct on the older version build.
Newer version has some other bugs as well but this is a show stopper for us. I hope the Gerber's, drills, and stencil output are correct still.
It would be nice if the pick and place report would exclude (option to exclude) through hole parts.

I think it is just a matter the way excel as parsed the csv data.
Check common Excel issue with csv. IMHO excel sucks at many things.

I ran an older version of dip trace that has not been updated (my office computer) yet and it worked perfect.

In Pick and Place, check the following:
- "Decimal Separator",
- "Column Divider",
- "Quotation Marcs for Values".

After that, insert csv data into Exel considering these settings.

That fixed the problem. I thought it was a bug. I'm glad it was on my end here. Thank you Serg.
