Comma-separated values

A comma-separated values (CSV) file stores tabular data (numbers and text) in plain-text form. As a result, such a file is easily human-readable (e.g., in a text editor). CSV is a simple file format that is widely supported by consumer, business, and scientific applications. Among its most common uses is to move tabular data between programs that naturally operate on a more efficient or complete proprietary format. For example, a CSV file might be used to transfer information from a database program to a spreadsheet.

TWikiApplications can generate content in CSV format using FormattedSearches. Learn how to export TWiki data in CSV format for use in Excel.
