Comma Separated Values. It's a means of saving a file in a very generic form where each value is separated by a comma. Pretty much any computer program can read this because it's literally just vanilla text - no formatting at all. It's used a lot with databases, Excel, and report programs.
It's a handy way to save the data with one program and assure you'll be able to read it/tmport it with something else.
