CSV configuration parameters

The CSV ("Comma Separated Value") file format is often used to exchange data between disparate applications. The file format, as it is used in Microsoft Excel, has become a pseudo standard throughout the industry, even among non-Microsoft platforms.

Some application features import or export data in CSV (Comma Separated Value) like results in the search view and user lists in administration, among others. The format of the output CSV file can be configured to your needs with several parameters.
