Comma-separated values format

You can import, convert, and export files in comma-separated values format.

Importing or converting comma-separated values files

You can choose whether FileMaker Pro Advanced uses a specified row of data in the file as field names.

All fields are text fields.

Exporting comma-separated values files

Commas separate field values. Carriage return characters separate records. Quotation marks enclose all field values.

Carriage return characters in a field export as vertical tab characters.

Values in repeating fields are separated by the group separator character.

Only numeric data is exported from number fields. Any non-numeric data such as text or symbols is not included in the exported data.

Quotation marks (") in a field (not curly quotes) export as double quotation marks ("").
