Same answer as your previous question here - Open the file from within Excel, using Excel's data import feature, rather than double click it.
Here's the answer from a different source, if that helps.

If you have SAS 9.4 consider ODS Excel or ODS TAGSETS.EXCELXP + a VB script to convert to native Excel file.

You are perhap mixing types here. CSV is a useful format for data transfer, i.e. if you are sending the data to someone that is the best format. If however the file is for review, say in Excel, then use the reporting functionalities, ods tagsets.excelxp for example, which will allow you to specify formats in the markedup output:
So, step one, decide what the output is to be used for, different formats are for different things. Then use the best technology for that purpose.
