Comma Separated Values (CSV) is a text format where data is stored in tabular form. The CSV file format is used for importing texts into spreadsheets and SQL databases, as well as for exporting from SQl databases.
In CSV format, the individual texts of a line are separated by commas or semicolons. It is a flat file format and a variant of the ASCII character set and the TXT format for tabular data and the exchange of plain data.
CSV files are extremely important for exporting or importing large amounts of data, for example, for storing information about customers, products, inventory and other details in the case of an online store. The CSV file format facilitates exporting, importing and converting and can be used for coordination between different business units.
