B.3. Comma Separated Value (.csv)

Flash Card Master has limited support for csv files. They can be read from and written to, however any customizations of field appearance (like position, colors etc.) will be lost. Only names of the fields are saved.

CSV files can be useful if you prefer to edit or already have a flash card collection in Excel or another spreadsheet program. A sample CSV file is shown below.

Chapter,Word,Meaning,Derivatives  [1]
I,më,"me,myself",                 [2]
I,quid,what,(quid pro quo)        [2]

This is the header. The name of each field is required and is separated by a comma (or another character set in the preferences).


These are the data. Commas inside double quotes are not counted as separators and are considered part of the data.
