The best way to import is simply:

  1. Open the CSV in the Calc application (navigating the dialogs to interpret the separators, etc);
  2. Select the data using the cursor-- select all rows and columns;
  3. Copy the data in the Calc window, for example using Ctrl-c;
  4. Open the window for the LibreOffice Base application;
  5. Navigate in Base window to Tables tab;
  6. Paste the copied data into the Tables tab on the Base window using Ctrl-p;
  7. Navigate through dialog boxes to determine how to structure the new table.

When you are done, you have a new table in the Base application with the data from the CSV file open in the Calc application.
