A .csv (Comma Separated Values) file is not a table.  It is a text file
with commas between the values.  Character fields need to be delimited
(surrounded) with, usually, double quotes but this is only really
necessary of the field contains commas.

COPY TO ... DELIMITED doesn't create a table, it creates a .csv text file.

To have a look at what's in the .csv file use the sourcecode editor.
