CSV Splitter is a tiny and portable piece of software designed to help you split CSV files, as the name clearly says. It features just a few options that can be easily figured out, even by users with little experience in conversion utilities.
Since installation is not a prerequisite, you can drop the executable file in any part of the hard disk and just click it to run.
There is also the possibility to save CSV Splitter to a USB flash drive or other removable storage unit, in order to run it on any PC effortlessly and without prior installers.
An important aspect worth taking into account is that the Windows registry and Start menu do not get updated with new entries, and no extra files are created on the disk without your consent, so there are no traces left behind after CSV Splitter's removal.
User-friendly interface and options
The main app window has a clear-cut structure that allows you to indicate CSV files with the help of the file browser only, since the drag-and-drop method is not supported.
So, you can specify the number of rows per package, include the header in each new package, as well as ask CSV Splitter to put the column header in the first row. Conversion starts with the click of a button, after which you can inspect the new file's path, row index, and elapsed time.
Unfortunately, CSV Splitter does not implement options for modifying the default output directory and file name. All new files are created in the same location as the sources, and their names receive a suffix.
Evaluation and conclusion
There were no kind of problems in our tests, since CSV Splitter did not hang, crash or pop up error messages. It is very responsive to commands and carries out conversion jobs rapidly, delivering good results when it comes to the new CSV's structure. All in all, CSV Splitter serves its purpose and can be used by anyone.
