I'm looking for a tool that will convert a table, in CSV format, into 2nd and 3rd normal forms.

I've found many tutorials and examples on the process, but no tools.

I'm running Windows 7 on PC.

I wouldn't think that is possible as you would need to tell the software about the data, which would ultimately be the same as normalising manually.
