A CSV file consists of plain text separated by commas. It is well suited for transferring large amounts of database information without being locked into a special format file type. To convert data in the V-card VCF format to CSV on a Macintosh, employ a Mac-compatible spreadsheet program. All such programs operate in a similar fashion when saving VCF data as CSV data to the computer's hard drive. The VCF data will be untouched by the conversion to CSV.
