Delimited Text File

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

A delimited text file (such as a comma-separated file) is a text file containing a matrix of text information in rows and columns.  Each row ends in a Carriage Return/Line Feed (which simply means that each row is a separate line of text).

Each value in a row of data is separated from the next with a delimiter character, such as a comma [,] a TAB, a ~ or some other character.
