Rather immodestly we think Rons CSV Editor is the best CSV editor. However we are the ones who created it so we don't actually expect anyone to believe us. For this reason we provide an 100% free Lite version of our software, and a free trial of the Pro version, so that our customers can make up their own minds in their own time.



Our Goals

Let's be clear. Excel is state of the art spreadsheet software, and is excellent at doing what it was designed to do. However, over the years Excel's table structure has led it to be used in ways for which it was not originally designed. One of these is editing CSV files, for which it is capable, but far from perfect.


Some of the main problems encountered with CSV files in Excel

Problem Description Effect
Excel not recognizing the comma. For English installations of Excel the comma (,) is recognized and used correctly as a field/cell separator. However in European installations of Excel the comma is used as the decimal point character and Excel uses a semi colon (;) as the field/cell separator. Every field in a row in a CSV file is loaded into the first column as a single...

Overview Licenses

License Philosophy

A Rons Place Software application always needs a license to run.

When an application is downloaded it contains a Lite license, which is installed with the application and enables its free functionality. If the application has Pro options another license must be purchased to enable the Pro functionality. Some applications have no Pro options (they are 100% free), some application may have multiple Pro options, which need to have licenses purchased individually.

The combinations are as follows:

  • Lite only - 100% Free.
  • Lite, and Pro - a simple application.


There are three types of licenses for a Rons Place Software product:

License Type Characteristics Functionality Price
Lite The license a product ships with Limited Free
Pro Evaluation Professional license valid for 30 days Full (for 30 days) Free
Pro Unlimited Professional License Full $ Product Price
