Script To Read Certain Columns In Local CSV File With Classic ASP IIS

Msg#: 4352664 posted 1:36 pm on Aug 17, 2011 (gmt 0)

I have a CSV file dumped from a financial package which I need to extract some values from for use on an ASP page. Iíve managed to get a script to just read the entire file but thatís about it as I am pretty much clueless with ASP. All I need is the lines starting with 4000 to 4002 and then only the first, second and fourth column placed into variables that I can use later for some descriptions and calculations. Iíve included below an example of how the CSV file looks which is only 155 lines long but I only need the values from three of them.


So from this line I would like 4000, Sales and -5454 put into variables that I can use later on. The CSV file has no header.

Thanks in advanced.

[edit reason] Break the line, so it wraped. [/edit]

Just open the file, and create a counter. Loop through the file with ReadLine() and increment your counter each time. If you are on the line(s) that you want, then use split(line, ",") and then access the array elements that you want from that line.
