    Dim ofd As New OpenFileDialog
    If ofd.ShowDialog = Windows.Forms.DialogResult.OK AndAlso ofd.FileName <> "" Then
        Try
            Using reader As New Microsoft.VisualBasic.FileIO.TextFieldParser(ofd.FileName)
                reader.TextFieldType = FileIO.FieldType.Delimited
                reader.SetDelimiters(";")
                While Not reader.EndOfData
                    Dim Fields() As String = reader.ReadFields
                    Dim item As New ListViewItem
                    item.Text = Fields(0)
                    For x = 1 To UBound(Fields)
                        item.SubItems.Add(Fields(x))
                    Next
                    ListView1.Items.Add(item)
                End While
            End Using
        Catch ex As Exception

When you get the error in the error window at the bottom it should report the line number with the error. That's the code we need to see.

Here's a simple example of code you can use, you'll have to import System.IO

        'Read the file an put each line into a list.  Each line will be an item with subitems in the listview
        CSVTest = File.ReadAllLines("C:\test.csv").ToList

        'This adds the column headers.  If the first line of your file isn't header text, just use a comma delimeted string of the text that you want.
        Dim ColNames As List(Of ColumnHeader) = New List(Of ColumnHeader)

        'Replace `CSVTest(0)` with your new string if necessary.
        Dim ColumnArray() As String = CSVTest(0).Split(",")
        For i = 0 To ColumnArray.Count - 1
            ColNames.Add(New ColumnHeader)
            ColNames(i).Name = ColumnArray(i)
            ColNames(i).Text = ColumnArray(i)
        Next
        ListView1.Columns.AddRange(ColNames.ToArray)

        'This adds the rest of the data from the file to the listview.  If the first line of the file is data and not header text, then change `For I = 1 To CSVTest.Count - 1` to `For I = 0 To CSVTest.Count - 1`
        For I = 1 To CSVTest.Count - 1
            Dim col() As String = CSVTest(I).Split(",")
            Dim NewLVItem As ListViewItem = New ListViewItem(col(0))
            NewLVItem.Name = col(0)
            For j = 1 To col.Count - 1
                NewLVItem.SubItems.Add(col(j))
            Next
            ListView1.Items.Add(NewLVItem)
        Next

oops missed a line. First line should be Dim CSVTest as List(Of String) = New List(Of String)
