Help please ! how to open CSV file

Hi someone has emailed me a CSV file. I run Windows 8.1 and don't have Office installed. I can open it with Notebook but it isn't an acceptable way to view it.
Can anyone recommend a way to see it properly, do I need to purchase a program or what ? It is an important file that I may need to share in the future. Any help very gratefully received

https://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-fresh/ is free and should work fine. Fairly sizable download though.

Rather than downloading the whole Libre Office suite just use Google Sheets (a spreadsheet extension of Google Drive). If you have a Google account, ypu have Google Drive.

Techo stuff: A CSV file is a comma delimited list of records, and can be read into a spreadsheet.
