I'm defiantly a newbie with what I'm trying to do and achieve with    CSV 

all that is bugging me and stopping me in my tracks is not knowing and or understanding what a CSV is?

Any Help Would Be Awesome

That is actually text file for which each field is separated by comma (comma separated value). While opened in Excel such fields go to columns. Even if you may apply some formulas and format within Excel they exist only during your session and will be lost after you save the file in same CSV format. That is still the text.
