.CSV File Extension

Comma Separated Value Data File

Data File
The csv file format is commonly used in spreadsheets and databases, which uses a comma to separate the stored data fields.

The advantage is that the comma is part of the standard ASCII character set so there's no barrier to the readability of files including it; the disadvantage is that if an actual comma is present within the data, it must be surrounded by double quotes to avoid being read as a field break.
