Comma-Delimited file, Comma-Separated File
If you have the need to download your Newsletter Subscriber list to your computer (perhaps you are moving your FASO Newsletter Subscribers to a different newsletter service), use the Export Active Subscribers to comma-delimited file function.
This allows you to download your Subscribers' list data to a CSV file on your computer, for info such as: Name, Email Address, etc.
You can then open the CSV file is a spreadsheet application such as Microsoft Excel, OpenOffice Calc, Apple Numbers, and Google Sheets, or open using any basic text editor.
A comma-separated values (CSV) file stores tabular data (numbers and text) in plain text. Each line of the file is a data record. Each record consists of one or more fields, separated by commas. The use of the comma as a field separator is the source of the name for this file format.
NOTE: The internet browser, Chrome, saves the document as an .asp file, not as a .csv file. In Chrome, you will have to save the .asp file, then change the extension from .asp to .csv. A simple workaround is to use Mozilla Firefox for this function.
To Export Active Subscribers to comma-delimited file follow these steps:
NOTE: Once you download the file, finding its location on your hard drive will depend upon your operating system and your internet browser
Using Chrome or Safari, it will export to your Downloads folder.
Firefox will give you the option to download or open with ... (whatever 'spreadsheet software' your device uses, i.e. excel, numbers, microsoft office, etc.). Firefox may not give you an option where to download. If that is the case then Firefox will also export it to your Downloads folder.
