Load and save CSV file

Importing CSV data

Use PapaParse to load remote CSV data. PapaParse loads your data and converts it to an array of objects that is compatible with DataGridXL.

Hit the Browse-button to load one of your local CSV-files into the sheet. If you don't have a CSV-file lying around, you can download this mock-data first, then load it in to the grid.
