New CSV/Tab-Delimited file viewer and converter

CSVFileView is a simple CSV file viewer/converter utility that allows you to easily view the content of CSV or tab-delimited file created by NirSoft utilities or by any other software, in a simple table viewer. You can sort the lines according to one of the fields, remove unwanted fields and change their order, and then save the result back into CSV file, tab-delimited file, XML file, or HTML report.

You can download this new utility from this Web page.

    would it be possible to add an option to associate it with .csv files?

    I just started to use CSVFileView but I noticed, and read in the readme, I have to open the program first and then open a file or drag it in the window.
    It would be very helpful if I could create a shortcut to CSVFileView and in the Target line define the csv file to open.
    So when a user clicks on the shortcut it opens the requested csv file without having to go to File – Open CSV and select the file themselves.
    Also the ‘right-click on a csv file and choose Open With CSVFileView’ function will open CSVFileView but does not load the csv file.

    I hope you can implement this functionality in the next version of the CSVFileView tool.

    You can change the default program for any file extension in Windows.

    Windows 7
    Windows XP

    They can add the registry changes or ask if the user wants them but until they do this would be the way to make the change.

    That’s right but it is not an extension problem, if you choose Open With and then click on Choose Program and point to CSVFileView.exe, version 1.00 would start but not open the csv file. Version 1.10 however does, problem solved thank you Nir, great tool!

    Is it perhaps possible to let the user select ‘Auto Size Columns’ and that this option stays enabled like ‘Mark Odd/Even Rows’? Now the user has to choose ‘Auto Size Columns’ every time when the open a file.

    When you choose ‘Auto Size Columns’ it sizes the columns to the width of the data in the column, it would be nice if the minimum width would be the Column Name width so the Column Name is always visible.

    Question : does it manage VERY HUGE CSV files ? When I say very huge is over 10 gigabyte sizes and up to 4000 columns.
    I’m desperately looking for a tool able to handle big files and all available tools perform a complete load of the file – tihs doesn’t fit my needs.

    Banana can be used to have headers on columns. Manual setting of needed rows. Import by copy and paste. Copy from webpages maybe CopyAndTrim is needed.

    Able to Abstract read scanned pages to tables.

    I tried this program to convert a CSV file to tab delimited but the output leaves an extra tab at the end of every line.

    CSVFileView has evolved into a most useful too. Please consider an option to allow setting a larger font in the quick search bar.

    Thank you.
