Don't import CSV data without checking it first!
Analyze, verify, and transform CSV files with CsvTool.
The perfect tool to use when you're not sure how a CSV file is formatted or whether it contains formatting errors.
(Easy enough to check with a text file of a hundred-or-so lines,
but impossible for larger or binary files without something like CsvTool.)
A necessity before loading important data into a database or spreadsheet.
