You are using terms and concepts that apply to spreadsheets, but do not apply to R or CSV files. Please conform to the Posting Guide and make a reproducible example [1][2][3] using R code to demonstrate your problem. I suspect you will find that your problem begins in your spreadsheet and not in R or the CSV file, but if not then the example will help us help you.
