Creating OpenOffice Base files from .csv files

Getting advice for .csv conversion to OpenOffice Base.

I have .csv files with over 1400 fields (columns). I want to create an OpenOffice Base database from these files. I cannot import that many columns into most spreadsheets. How do I create such a database?
Follow the instructions here for creating a database that connects to text files. The instructions cover connecting to spreadsheets or text files, so follow the individual notes in the procedure that specify what to do with text files. When you are prompted to specify the separator during the procedure, specify that the separator is a comma.
