Exporting data in comma delimited format in text file


Robert M. Lincoln

I have Excel 2002. How do you export columns of data in a comma-delimited
text file?

Try saving the file. Make sure you choose: "CSV (Comma delimetd)(*.csv)" as
the file type.

If you want to only save certain columns (or even just a certain range), copy
those to a worksheet in a new workbook save that new workbook as a .CSV file.

You could also write your own code to do exactly what you want. Here are some
sites with sample code:
