A BOM saved as Excel has issues

After saving a BOM as Excel file, then open the file in Excel, I don't have certain abilities.

-Insert Symbols not available...For example if I want to insert a symbol (like in the cut size I want to add a diameter symbol)

-Highlight a row and right drag it, there should be options like "shift down and move" and others, not available.

However if I copy & paste all contents into a NEW book, all this stuff is available.

Any ideas on what formatting or something is missing in the raw "save as" from SolidWorks.
