.CSV (comma-separated values/character-separated values) are a plain-text file type for storing tables of data. For Example, a person’s medical data could be formatted as “LastName, FirstName, Sex, Height, Weight.” Although commas are the most common delimiter for these file types, they can also utilize other characters to separate their values, such as backslash, forward slash, semicolons, or tabs. The CSV file type is most often used as a flat-file input for tabular or spreadsheet programs such as Microsoft Word or Google Sheets. In fact, one of the primary uses for this file type is the transfer of data between programs that can’t directly interact with each other by exporting and importing these CSV files. To create a CSV file from existing data in a spreadsheet program, simply look for the “Export” option and choose “CSV (Comma Delimited) (*.csv)” or press the “Save As” option and change the file type to CSV. To import an existing CSV file, open your program of choice and open the file within the program. Comma Separated Values(CSV), which are extensions of plain text files, store data in entries separated by commas. A CSV file contains a new record for each line in the file's set of records. Files of this type are created when you intend to move data from one storage space to another. Because comma-separated entries are recognized by all applications, importing these data files into databases is a breeze. CSV files may be imported easily into most spreadsheet programs, including Microsoft Excel and OpenOffice Calc. It is possible to use a spreadsheet to display information from these files. The apps that can access CVS files can be used to convert these files to a variety of other formats. The CSV data can be imported into Microsoft Excel and exported to a variety of other file formats including the aforementioned HTML, TXT, PDF, XLSX, and XLS files. CSV files can also be exported to RTF, ODS, and HTML via other desktop and web applications.
