I'm trying to parse CSV files uploaded by the user through PHP, but it's not working properly.
I've uploaded several properly formatted CSVs and it worked fine, however; I have many users trying to import CSV files exported from Excel and they are having problems.

If I open it and save it with Open Office, without making any changes at all it works. So I'm fairly certain it's related to the quotes.
My question is; how do I read these improperly formatted CSVs?
