A delimiter is a digital separator that separates different characters. It is a unique character that tells where one piece of data stops and the next one begins. The most common delimiter is a comma character.

Imagine you have a list of items in a column, like names or numbers. Each item is stacked one below the other. However, when you want to turn this into a comma-separated list, you need a way to let the converter know where each item ends and the next one starts. This is where the delimiter comes in. It’s the character you choose to act as a separator between the items.

Example of Column List to Comma Separated List conversion

For instance, if you have a column with names like “Apple,” “Mango,” “Orange” and “Banana,” you can use a comma as the delimiter. The converter will then understand that when it encounters a comma, it should move to the next item and add it to the comma-separated list. So, the output would be “Apple, Mango, Orange, Banana.”

In short words, the delimiter is like a traffic sign for the converter, guiding it to correctly arrange your column data into a clean and easy-to-read comma-separated list or CSV.


CSV is a short name for comma-separated-values. It is one of the simple and widely used file formats to store tabular data such as spreadsheets or databases. In this format, each line represents a row of data and each value within that row is separated by a comma. Each line usually corresponds to a record, and the values in each line correspond to the fields or columns of that record.

To understand this, look at the below example of CSV representation of some basic employee data:

An Example of CSV file Format

In this example, the first line is used to specify the column headers, while the next lines contain the actual data. The commas act as separators between the values, allowing software to easily parse and interpret the data.

CSV files are supported by various types of software applications, including spreadsheet software like Microsoft Excel, database management tools, programming languages, and data processing libraries. Despite its simplicity, the CSV format is efficient for storing and exchanging structured data in a human-readable form, making it a common choice for data interchange between different applications and systems.
