    question about CSV files.

    I have a questions about what the CSV file is. I have a stat program on my website thats provided by my web host, basically it gives me a ton of information. I want to save the information for future reference and research on the people that visit my website, what pages they goto, what states they come from, and how long they stay on each page. My stats program does all this and more, and it has an export option to export the stats. The only way to export it, is into a *.CSV file. I don't know what this file type is, never heard of it before and my computer dosen't reconize it. I searched on the Internet and all I found it that it's not support by windows operating systems... not sure if this is true, or where they got their information. But can someone please tell me what program I can use to view this file?

    Thanks.

    CSV is pretty common. You should be able to import it into just about any database, spreadsheet, mail program, or just about anything else that works with data.
