Re: Storing csv as string or individual floats

If each csv block is always accessed en bloc, storing comma-separated data like that is ok. But if particular values needed to be queried from it, it needs to be normalised, ie broken out into rows & columns.

As for files, it's usually more efficient to store the file on disk somewhere, and in the database store the path to the file.
