CSV (short for Comma Separated Values) is a plain text file format that uses comma, Tab or other delimiters to separate the file content. It’s very common to use a .csv file to store the tabular data. For example, a lot of small programs use the CSV file to keep their configuration and data. In general, the most convenient way to view and edit a CSV file is really to use Microsoft Excel. However, it has a disadvantage – the edited and saved CSV file format is not UTF-8 by default. And, most of other third-party CSV editors do not support UTF-8 format well either.

Ron’s Editor is a professional, user-friendly and free CSV file batch editor (developed by Aaron Stewart from Canada) that allows you to easily open, browse, access, sort, clean and convert CSV files, so as to fully control their content and structure. Small yet powerful Ron’s Editor provides a comfortable way for the majority of users to operate the CSV file and export it to other programs for use. Or, it can be stated that Ron’s Editor is currently the best solution for editing the CSV file at daily work.

Ron’s Editor is not so convenient and easy-to-use as Excel, such as table cell’s drag & drop operation, as well as the auto-increment function of the ID field. Another fact is, for both text and software, supporting UTF-8 is very important. However, Excel cannot direct use UTF-8 format, as a result, you have to use some file coding converter to transcode the file format every time you save a file (otherwise, there will be only unreadable code), which is really troublesome. These aspects just highlight the strengths of Ron’s Editor.
