What is a csv file and how do I open a csv file?

Content stored in the CSV format refer to data files appended with the .csv extension, and these CSV files are also called comma separated values files. The "CSV" in a file affixed with the .csv extension stands for "Comma Separated Values" because the data in these CSV files are details divided by commas into particular sets of information. These pieces of data can be entered by users of spreadsheet and text editing applications integrated with support for the creation and modification of CSV documents. Separate database rows are represented by each line of text stored in a CSV file. These database rows are implemented with one or more data fields, and these are divided by commas. Microsoft Windows users can install spreadsheet and text editing applications developed by Microsoft for storing data that can later be used in database applications. One of these programs that can be used to create, open, view and edit the content of a CSV file is the Microsoft Excel spreadsheet application. There are also text editors and spreadsheet software that can be installed and used by Linux and Mac users to implement support for creating, opening, viewing and modifying the content of these CSV files.
