How to open a file with a CSV extension in Excel

CSV files can be opened in the Excel application. Excel uses a semicolon (;) and not a comma (,) for separating columns and that is why we have to use a guide to open (import) a CSV file.

This guide can differ based on the various versions of Excel, but the principle and steps are the same.

  1. Open a blank workbook in Excel.
  2. Click ‘‘Data‘‘ in the upper menu.
  3. In the menu on the next line (usually on the left), you will find section ‘‘Upload and transform data‘‘ and then ‘‘From text/CSV‘‘. Different versions of Excel have slight differences but the names and places are very similar.
  4. Choose ‘‘From text/CSV‘‘ and search the downloaded file.
  5. Click the button for import.
  6. Depending on the version of Excel you are using, the following steps might differ a bit. But the principle is always the same.
  7. Select that your file contains dividers.
  8. If the language you are viewing isn’t right (Czech for example), use coding ‘‘UTF 8‘‘.
  9. Choose a comma as a divider and finish the import.
