The CSV file is a way to save your pin information as a Microsoft Excel file. In this example the component pin information is already copied.

After verifying the data (Overbar, Pin Types, Sort A-Z etc.), click on  


and select the directory to save your “CSV file”. Make sure to put the corresponding Footprint Name. To know more about the footprint name, check out “Best Practices on Footprint Naming Convention” video.

A new window will show the saved location, click “OK”.

Look for your file in your directory and open it.

When the csv is open notice that the columns look different compared to the one in the user interface. This done by default and it does not affect the symbol creation. Make sure that the component name and footprint name are correct.
