CSV stands for Comma Separated Value. It is a file format that stores its text data in a way that separates data in a logical manner. Many calendar applications, including Microsoft Outlook, format their exported calendar events in a CSV document. The ICS, or iCal, format is a universal calendar format used by Apple iCal, Google Calendar and Mozilla Sunbird. You can convert a CSV file into the iCal format using a CSV-to-iCal conversion program.
