Hi there,

I am trying to parse a CSV file, I have a program which will read in the contents of the file and display them to the console and i need to parse some of the fields, which I have no idea how to do [IMG]http://saloon.javaranch.com/ubb/frown.gif[/IMG]
I am trying to get the field info into to an SWT table. The csv file I'm trying to parse has some useless information before and after the file info which is numbered [0-n].
I need to get each relevent line and take its individual pieces of data and store them in an array or something so I can put them into my table i.e. '0:' in one tableItem and 'bla.jpg' in the next tableItem.

Any help or code samples would be much appreciated,

Thanks in advance,
