.CSV File Format

When an import file is a .CSV file, it's a "comma-separated values" file – a text file in which the values are separated by commas.

For example, you can "Download As > Comma-separated values (.csv)" in Google Drive (Sheets).

(You can also upload an Excel file to Google Drive, and download it as a .csv file from there.)


Important Note:

If the file includes any characters outside the normal ANSII character set (see examples below), then it must be correctly encoded as UTF-8, so we recommend using Google Drive – see above.

(Excel does not have an option to save a .csv file encoded as UTF-8; that is, as Unicode text.)
