Subject:Re: Action after csv import

When you do the import does he csv file have a header row?

There are a dozen ways to this... some ideas.

I would open a textStream to the csv and read each line into a string and
break into an array.
Loop the textStream until eof

If the csv has a header row read line 1 and make an array.
This then is the field names and order of field in file.

Then read each row and build a dynarray and based on the array and insert
the dynarray into table B.
or just map the array to the tcursor.
No need for table A.


import to table and read the structure if it creates field names dynamically
Then use an insert query if field names are same the feild order does not
