CSV Converter

CSV Converter Icon

CSV Converter is a simple application for opening, editing and saving CSV (Comma-separated values) files. The CSV file format is widely used to exchange data arranged in a table, like in a Numbers or Excel spreadsheet.

I wrote CSV Converter to be able to open CSV files that some apps are having problems with, preview the tabular data and re-save it without the internal inconsistencies that cause the issue.

Additionally, it can export the table in various formats like RTF, Word and Open Document text or copy the table to the clipboard in the format that iWork uses.

There is editing support, but the main purpose of the app is getting usable data out of CSV files.

You can get it on the Mac App Store.

Contact me if there is something it needs to do better.

    Need a good and safe CSV to Vcard converter. Do medical stuff and can’t trust free converters or using Google to do this. All my work needs to be HIPPA Compliant. Hope to see this addition soon!

    If all you need is to transfer contacts from CSV files to Address Book or Contacts on OS X you can do that today.

    Just open your CSV file in CSV Converter and use “Export…” to save it as a “Text” file.

    In the Address Book/Contacts app you can then import the “.txt” file via “Import…” from the “File” menu.

    You should choose “Unicode (UTF-8)” as the text encoding in the file selection dialog that opens and then select the file you just exported from CSV Converter. 

    Once imported, your contacts can be easily exported to vCard.

    Another vote for multimarkown export. Is this planned or has it already been implemented?

    MultiMarkdown export has been in CSV Converter for a few versions now. Enjoy!
