Output CSV file

I have a program that output the  ownership and permission on each directory and file on the server. I am getting error message
when I run the program.  The program is not outputting csv file.

the file access permissions do not allow the specified action
cannot change directory
xrealloc: cannot allocate 9900416 bytes

Here is my code
ls -l $(find /sasem/* -type f) > "$monitorf"
mail -a /sc/sb/monitor.csv -s "monitor" jgk@yahoo.com; billygm@yahoo.com

You are not doing anything to add commas for it to look like CSV
One option is to use sed -e 's/[ ]+/\,/g' after the ls -l and before the feed/output to the file.  Note if your files have spaces in them, you will have more columns than expected.

You might get errors if your find matches too many files

An option such as $(find) | while read a; do
ls -l "$a" | sed ... >> "$monitorf"
