Expert users will realize that the Text-editor window provides all the functionality necessary to construct CSV data control files as well as LOF files:

Replace the first line with fieldnames separated by a character such as a comma, semicolon or tab.
Enter the data, one record per line. Use the same separator character between each data-value in a record.
If a string-value contains separator character(s) or space(s), the whole string-value must be enclosed within a pair of quote characters. Single or double quotes may be used, as long as the opening quote character is the same as the closing quote character.
Save the file with .CSV as the extension.
