Hi All,

Anyone know of an efficient way to read a data text file in comma delimited format and displaying the information to a table. I read some of the previous post, but they did not seem too informative.

Basically,

Check file existance, display if not availible
Load variables from file
Diplay variables to table

hii!

just try the following code: hope it might help you! i have used the Microsoft Text Driver to read the content from the CSV file strieghtly & populating a Grid with the fetched data!

Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
Dim dtRecords As DataTable
Dim dr As DataRow
dtRecords = GetDataTable("SELECT * FROM members2.csv")
DataGridView1.DataSource = dtRecords

End Sub

Private Function GetConnection()
Return "Driver={Microsoft Text Driver (*.txt; *.csv)};HDR=YES;Extensions=asc,csv,tab,txt;Dbq= " & Application.StartupPath & "\;"
End Function

Private Function GetDataTable(ByVal sql As String)
Dim rt As DataTable
Dim da As OdbcDataAdapter
Dim con As OdbcConnection
Dim cmd As OdbcCommand
Try
rt = New DataTable()
ds = New DataSet()
da = New OdbcDataAdapter()
con = New OdbcConnection(GetConnection())
cmd = New OdbcCommand(sql, con)
da.SelectCommand = cmd
da.Fill(ds)
rt = ds.Tables(0)
Label1.Text = "Records in the CSV:" + CStr(ds.Tables(0).Rows.Count)
Catch ex As Exception
rt = Nothing
MsgBox(ex.Message)
End Try
Return rt
End Function
