How to create CSV file on Mac?


Last updated on Sep 05, 2023

Creating a CSV file on your Mac is easier than you might think. It's a useful skill to have, especially when you want to share data or import it into programs or apps like Mystrika.

In this guide, we'll walk you through the steps in a simple and easy-to-understand way.

Step 1: Open Your Excel File

  • First, open the Excel file that contains the data you want to save as a CSV. If you're not sure how to open Excel, simply double-click the Excel icon in your Applications folder.

Step 2: Click on "File"

  • In the top-left corner of your screen, you'll see a menu bar. Click on "File" to access the file-related options.

Step 3: Choose "Save As"

  • From the dropdown menu that appears when you click "File," select "Save As." This will open a window that allows you to specify how you want to save your file.

Step 4: Select the File Format

  • In the "Save As" window, you'll see a field where you can choose the file format. Click on it to see a list of available formats. Look for "CSV UTF-8 (Comma delimited)" in the list. This is the format you want for a CSV file.

Step 5: Click "Save"

  • Once you've selected "CSV UTF-8 (Comma delimited)," click the "Save" button. You'll be asked where you want to save the file on your computer. Choose a location that makes sense to you, and click "Save" again.

That's it! You've successfully created a CSV file from your Excel spreadsheet. It's now ready to be used with other applications or shared with others.
