Microsoft used to have an Excel Viewer but it is retired, though it may still work.

If you don't have an MS Office license I'd suggest LibreOffice.

However, you mention CSV files and these are not actually Excel Spreadsheets, they can just be viewed in a text editor if needs be, or any Spreadsheet software will open a formatted view.  There are also CSV specific viewers such as Nirsoft's
CSV / Tab delimited file viewer and converter for Windows (nirsoft.net)
 

I hadn't heard of that %SQL method either and, as well as speed, the %File method has advantages such as more file details being returned and better filtering with wildcards.

Hi, apologies, I missed that, the fix is now merged.

BTW, do you have an example of the OS commands output when this fails?
