CSV stands for Comma-Separated Values
CSV is a common, simple file format that is widely supported. Among its most common uses is moving tabular data between programs that natively use incompatible formats. This works because many programs support some variation of CSV at least as an alternative import/export format.
A comma-separated values (CSV) file stores tabular data (numbers and text) in plain-text form. A CSV file consists of any number of records, separated by line breaks. Each record consists of fields, separated by another character, most usually a comma. Usually, all records have an identical sequence of fields.
SmartDebit use CSV files to:

- When saving as a CSV format, you will lose all formatting and any additional tabs. Therefore, if importing a file - it's a good idea to keep the spreadsheet open while importing so you can view the file simultaneously to uploading onto the SmartDebit system.
