A very simple CSV-export tool for C#, code ispired by a thread at Stackoverflow, (C) Chris Hulbert

This was previously published as a "Gist" but I moved it here, for easier forking/contributing.



  1. Excel-compatible export (separator detected automatically, friendly-trimming rows and values for compatibility)
  2. Escapes commas, quotes, multiline text
  3. Exports dates in timezone-proof format
  4. Extremely easy to use

Usage example:

Install via Nuget Install-Package CsvExport then:

var myExport = new CsvExport();

myExport["Region"] = "Los Angeles, USA";
myExport["Sales"] = 100000;
myExport["Date Opened"] = new DateTime(2003, 12, 31);

myExport["Region"] = "Canberra \"in\" Australia";
myExport["Sales"] = 50000;
myExport["Date Opened"] = new DateTime(2005, 1, 1, 9, 30, 0);

///ASP.NET MVC action example
return File(myExport.ExportToBytes(), "text/csv", "results.csv");
