Description:

CSV files — comma separated values — are a widely used file type for the transfer of simple information. It's a format used by Excel and a host of other applications in finance and other industries.

CSVEdit will open these files supporting a user-selectable set of field delimiters and file encodings, allow you to search and filter (ie, only show rows containing a string), and edit the files. Fields can be altered, rows added, reordered and/or removed, columns added or deleted. CSVEdit supports undo so you can try things out.

By changing the file's characteristics, you can open SQL data extracts (hint: change the field separator to "|") or many other row-based formats.

The files can then be saved, optionally using new delimiters or in a different file encoding to make translating between formats easy.

It all adds up to a simple but powerful tool for browsing and editing CSV files.

Note: CSVEdit does not save comment lines present in the input when writing out files.

Simple, barebones, but does what it says quite well! - This simple $2 app managed to open and help clean up CSV files and data most other apps (including Excel / Numbers / FM Pro / etc…) couldn’t! wish list (improvements + new features) : - save sorted data… sorted! - multi-thread! (octo-core power wasted…) - disk-based processing? or better memory management? (5GB file with 329 columns = choke) Keep up the good work!

Version 1.1.1
Review by Julien Genestoux

Doesn't even import the CSV file I need to process - This time I've had enough. this rant is probably more against Apple than this dev, but I'm tired of buying apps that do not work. I have a CSV file that I want to read. Reading it as text is quite difficult so I decided I'll find a good CSV app. Open App Store, couldn't find a lot. Found this one, paid $2, just to find out tht it ibviously won't open my file. I'm not sure (and Idon't care to be honest) it's the fault of the app that was badly designed and puts too many asumption on the CSV files or if it's my fault which is at fault, but I just wasted $2. Ibelieve this is my last "blind" purchase on the store as long as there is no "trial" mechanism.

Version 2.4
Review by Bluewoodtree

It's okay! - This is a nice and lightweight app to quickly few, edit, and save CSV files. For more extensive editing (adding/deleting rows or columns) it is a little bit fiddly though. But for $2 it's more than a fair deal that I would recommend.

Version 2.4
Review by MisterShmi

Completely unintuitive - I have no idea how to use this app. All i want to do is delete some columns, theres even a button on the main toolbar (which i had to enable by digging around in the menu bar in the first place) but when i click delete column nothing happens. The icon is nice, but the app itself is sketchy and totally amateur looking. Also its basically impossible to use from a users standpoint.

Review by jdcallow

This is the tool you need when Excel crashes on CSVs - It may be a poor editor, but when excel crashes with the meaningless error msg of “out of memory” whilst editing or opening large CSV files this 2.00 app is a great solution.

Version 2.4
Review by Peter Chester

All i want to do is delete a column :( - There’s a button for it but there’s no way to select a column to delete it. Total fail. The only reason i give it more than 1 star is because it seems ok otherwise. But sadly that is the whole reason i bought it.
