Replying to [comment:2 Sfkeller]:
Ok, "tab" instead "comma" (as indicated in some documentation).
But at least under Windows it's two sometimes on space(s) - still NOT "tab".
It works nicely for me under windows with Open Office Calc. If you use MS Office Excel you should configure it to open the csv files the right way.
If in the documentation is described that the separator field is a comma then please ask in the community mailing list to correct the problem.
