Tables of data are often held in text files with the values in a line being separated by a comma, space, tab or other character, for example 123, 456, 789, abcd, efgh. Such files are commonly called CSV (Comma Separated Values) files, even though the separating character may not be a comma.

If you ask Calligra Sheets to open a text file it assumes that the file is in CSV format and launches a dialog box that allows you to specify the delimiter (separating character) used by the file, and shows how the data items will be placed into different spreadsheet cells.

Other options in this dialog box let you define the Format of the spreadsheet cells, whether text quote characters should be removed, and whether the first line(s) of the file should be ignored.


Save a document to any supported format. The document does not become the exported file.
