1. The term CSV stands for a file format. This file format is, strictly speaking, a text format. It is used to exchange structured and comma-separated values. Virtually all common programs accept the CSV file format for importing and exporting data.
2. In computing, a comma-separated values (CSV) file stores tabular data (numbers and text) in plain text. Each line of the file is a data record. Each record consists of one or more fields, separated by commas. The use of the comma as a field separator is the source of the name for this file format.
