CSV = Comma Separated Values, is nothing more or less than a data-exchange format ... mostly concerned with what to do when the content of a particular data field contains either a comma or a newline.   It has no notion of formatting.

I guess from your post that what you’re really trying to do is to get data into an Excel spreadsheet.   In this case, a tool such as Excel::Writer::XSLX might be more to your liking.   The CSV file-format does not have (and was never intended to have) the expressiveness that your present requirement appears to demand.

You should also consider whether it would be appropriate (in a Windows environment) to use OLE.   Launch “Excel, itself,” tell it to create a Spreadsheet object, then feed data into it ... formatting and all.   Tell Excel to save the spreadsheet and you are done.
