CSV - text format for data exchange
) is a simple file format designed for exchange of tabular data. The file in CSV
format contains rows with individual items separated by comma (,) character. Item values can be enclosed in quotation marks ("), allowing the item text to contain a comma. If the text of the item contains quotation marks then these are doubled.
Because in some languages the comma character is used in numbers as a decimal separator, there are variants that use a different separator, most often semicolon (;) or tab.
