Comma-Separated Text format
You can import, convert, and export files in comma-separated text format.
Converting Comma-Separated Text to FileMaker Pro
Field names are generic (f1, f2, f3, and so on).
All fields are text fields.
Exporting Comma-Separated Text files
Commas separate field values. Carriage return characters separate records. Quotation marks enclose all field values, except unformatted numbers.
Carriage return characters in a field export as vertical tab characters.
Values in repeating fields are separated by the group separator character.
Only numeric data is exported from number fields. Any non-numeric data such as text or symbols is not included in the exported data.
Quotation marks (") in a field (not curly quotes) export as double quotation marks ("").
