Separator format for multiple entry custom fields

I've been trying to import lists with entries which live in multiple entry custom fields, but couldn't work out how to import them. But I have now and thought I'd share it with you.

Cutting to the chase, use double pipes ie || between the options. So for a list that has three fields (the third being a custom field with multiple options)

name, email address, option1||option2||option3||...||option n

Hope this helps.
