A Comma Separated Values (CSV) file is a plain text file that contains a list of data. These files are often used for exchanging data between different applications.

You can choose to export CSV file in "Shift JIS" or "UTF-8" encoding format:

  • Shift-JIS: Character encoding format commonly used in Windows
  • UTF-8(Unicode): Character encoding format commonly used in MacOS

*However, if the data encoded doesn't display the language properly, please choose the opposite format instead.
