What is a CSV file?

A CSV (or Comma Separated Value) file is a plain text file that contains data in list form.  CSV files are generally used to share data. 

CSV files can be exported from Spreadsheet software such as Microsoft Excel, OpenOffice Calc or MacOS Numbers, and they can be created using simple text editors such as Notepad on Microsoft Windows or TextEdit on MacOS.

What format should the CSV file have?

  • The only information required is an email address on each row.
  • No headers are required, however if you include them, they will be ignored during the import.

Using Microsoft Excel

  • Add an email address per row in the first column
    • Choose File > Save As and change the File Format to CSV UFT-8 (Comma-delimited) (.csv)
