Values separated by columns that you wish to map to a Salesforce objects field.

One way to use the dataloader is to create a field mapping from the columns in your CSV to the fields of a Salesforce object.

Have a look at Chapter 3: Using Data Loader in the PDF. In particular Inserting, Updating, or Deleting Data Using Data Loader on pg 12.
