CSV Format:


The extra comma appearing at end of rows in "CSV format",for the rows which has NULL values at end in the "Report"

Report Format:

The comma doesn't really look like it's 'extra' since there is a column that comes after it.

If that column is always null, can you just remove it from the report? The columns in the report/CSV look like they hold different things - maybe each type of row could go into its own csv?

Like KenJ said before, comma at the end of row in your csv is for reason. Csv formated like this is correct, and if you do any operation with that csv file, it'll work. But if you delete commas at the end of some rows, in that case your csv will differ from your real data in database.
