I can’t open Findymail’s exported CSV files

If you can’t read/open a CSV file exported from Findymail in a given software (eg. Microsoft Excel, Google Sheets etc.) or if the file displays with formatting issues, it’s probably because of incorrect settings.

CSV files can be written with different rules:

- what character is the separator (usually “,” but it can be “;” or tabulations)
- how strings are delimited (”string“, ‘string‘, etc)
- etc.

Sometimes the software you’re using to open the CSV will auto-detect the right parameters, sometimes they will ask you and sometimes you’ll have to configure them manually.

All Findymail files are written with the following rules:

- Separator: comma (”,”)

Make sure to configure the software you’re using accordingly.
