Thanks for this.
Point noted. In this particular case, the data is not formatted. Rather, it is a straight dump of data from the DB. But, I will have to take a look at that, to ensure that the CSV file MySQL produces is valid. The amount field won't be a problem as it is an unformatted decimal number, but one of the address fields may well contain commas. IIRC, MySQL allows one to add a clause that encloses all fields in single or double quotes, which would prevent problems if one field or another includes commas as a part fo the data.
