  • Using Beyond Compare as a CSV editor

    I deal with CSV files constantly. Often I will use Beyond Compare for editing them by comparing the file to itself. Is there a way to get Beyond Compare to just load the single file and forget about doing a comparison? I know this isn't the intended use for the program, but so far I haven't found a better tool that lets me edit a CSV file without destroying it.

    Select Tools > Edit Text File from the menu to open a single pane text editor. There isn't an equivalent single pane version of the Table Compare for CSV files. If I need to edit a single CSV file, I often use Microsoft Excel.
