Using CSV Files

What is a CSV

A CSV is a comma-separated values file, which allows data to be saved in a tabular format.. CSV files can be opened up using Excel, just like you can open xlsx (Excel) files. There are two ways to open CSV files in Excel.

  1. Open Excel, and just drag and drop the CSV file into Excel
  2. Setup Windows to open CSV files

Set up Windows to open CSV file

Right click on a CSV file (file with .csv extension), and select Open With option. If you don’t have a CSV file, just create an empty file with name test.csv

Click on Open with Excel

If you do not have Excel in the Open with Drop down, select Choose another app

If in the list of apps, you have Excel, select that. If not, click on More Apps

Click on Look for another app on this PC

In the file select dialog box, search for excel. In the search results, select EXCEL

After this all your CSV files can be directly opened with Excel, just by double-clicking on the file

Saving CSV Files using Excel

In Excel, select Save As. In the drop down shown for selecting a file format, select CSV (Comma delimited) (*.csv). You may choose to rename the file with .csv extension. E.g. demo_upload_returns.csv
