CSV - Comma Separated Values

What is CSV?

CSV stands for Comma-Separated Values or Character-Separated Values. With Character-Separated Value files any character, not just a comma, can be a delimiter for the data segments.

CSV files store data (numbers and text) within the file in a plain-text form, which means that the file can be opened in a variety of applications.

A CSV file can consist of any number of records, separated by line breaks, with each record consisting of various fields. The fields are separated by a designated character or string, most commonly a comma or a tab.

CSV files are a common message type as they are relatively simple and are widely supported by various systems and applications. CSV is often an alternative import/export format to the systems default file type.
