comma separated
Explanation:
Microsoft uses the term comma separated (with and without hyphen) in its glossaries.
This from their German Win2000 glossary (which is, in fact, a comma spearated list):
"""Comma Separated Column List""",,"""Liste mit durch Komma getrennte [sic!] Spalten""",,TXT,Windows 2000,,

delimited


Explanation:
as we are talking about file types, delimited would be the more appropriate term (in this case delimited by comma, but I would not think that it is necessary to state the type of delimiter in a list)
