What is benifit to use CSV file and how is defferent from excel

What is benifit to use CSV file and how is defferent from excel can you give advantage and disadvantage of both and where I can use CSV and excel.

Hey!

The difference between CSV and XLS file formats is that CSV format is a plain text format in which values are separated by commas (Comma Separated Values), while XLS file format is an Excel Sheets binary file format which holds information about all the worksheets in a file, including both content and formatting.

  1. csv is just a text file (you can open it as a text file), hence activities like read/write to csv are a lot faster than read/write to xlsx since its basically a text file

  2. disadvantage of csv: no formatting: you can format a csv file, e.g. if you open a csv file a format it e.g. change cell color etc , it wont be saved
