Option - 1 

First save as .xls from .xlsx - Then save the file .xls as MS-DOS .csv format & it should work.

Option - 2 

Using Excel to create UTF8 CSV files is problematic (sometimes saving as XLS instead of XLSX first produces different results, sometimes the UTF8 files are not in fact UTF8).

I have better luck using a different text editor, or using a codepage conversion program.

Also, don't overlook that some conversion may be happening when you move your files between operating systems.
