Notes about the CSV file extension:

Incorrect file associations could be the result of underlying issues within your PC system. As such it is highly recommended to scan your PC for invalid registry entries, unused processes and other unfavourable system settings to identify slowdown issues.

The CSV file type is primarily associated with 'Comma-Separated Variables'. A comma delimited file is a database exported into a format where each record is a single line and each field in the record is indicated by a comma. Where necessary (e.g., if the field has a comma in it) the field will also be quoted. If you have Excel, use the import feature of Excel to import the file. Specify comma delimited format as the import format. Then export to whatever format you require for the data. You can also usually import this format directly into most any database program or spreadsheet program as well. This file type is often associated with Microsoft Excel as this is one of the standard ways to transfer data into and out of a spreadsheet.
