About CSV format

A CSV file is a text file, with fields delimited with comma "," or semicolon ";". Other delimiters are also allowed, but rarely used. The text fields can be quoted, most often by the double quote mark. The example CSV file would look like this:

ID,First name,Last name
1,John,Doe
2,Mary Jane,Smith

After reading this file in spreadsheet application like OpenOffice or MS Excel, you would get something like:

ID First name Last name
1 John Doe
2 Mary Jane Smith

Tables join

If you import the CSV files into a relational database, to perform any useful report, you need to join patient, admission and operation tables.
