Split CSV Files

CSV (Comma Separated Values) files are used to store tabular data with each line of a csv file corresponding to one row of the table. The columns of each row are separated by commas which makes it an easy process to create a table out of csv files.

The most common use of csv files is data export and import. Many applications provide an export to csv option which will store the selected data in a csv file which can then be imported into another application that supports csv import.

Problems can arise if the generated csv file becomes very large as some applications or computer systems might run into limits. That's where CSV Splitter (via Technospot) would come into play. The portable application can split large csv files into multiple files limiting the newly created csv files by the number of lines.

The new csv files will be created in a subdirectory in the same location. It will be named after the original csv file. The application requires the Microsoft .net Framework 1.1.
