    I am collecting leads for someone who wants them delivered in a "tab or pipe delimited format in a .csv
    file." I have no idea what that means. Can someone explain what he is talking about?

    tab delimited means a tab characted is places between each field.
    I think the command to output this in perl & php is \t

    pipe delimited means that the | character is placed between each field.

    eg.
    lastname|firstname|dateofbirth|address|zip
    mylastname|myfirstname|mydob|ilivehere|myzip
    mylastname|myfirstname|mydob|ilivehere|myzip
    mylastname|myfirstname|mydob|ilivehere|myzip
    mylastname|myfirstname|mydob|ilivehere|myzip

    Thanks, Pete. Since posting I've done a little research and can now discuss .csv and delimited this and that for hours! Ha, ha. But at least know I know what it is. My expertise grows [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]
