The link I posted earlier amounts to basically this code:

                Dim openDialog As New OpenFileDialog
                openDialog.Filter = "CSV files (*.csv)|*.csv|All files (*.*)|*.*"
                openDialog.ShowDialog()
                Dim File As New System.IO.FileInfo(openDialog.FileName)
                Dim DBConnection As New System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection("Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" & File.DirectoryName & ";Extended Properties='text;HDR=Yes;FMT=Delimited'")
                Dim DBadapter As New System.Data.OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter("SELECT * FROM " & File.Name, DBConnection)
                Dim dTable As New System.Data.DataTable
                DBadapter.Fill(dTable)

This code will make and show an open file dialog box allowing selection of a CSV, then fill a datatable with all the information from the file chosen.

If you are using SQL Server 2000:  

You can use Data Transformation Services (DTS) to import the file directly, bypassing the need to use .Net.  If you need to do this routinely, the DTS package can be scheduled to run by the server.

SQL Server can import 1000 rows per second or two...

I apoligize to all of you for putting my comments in your feedback insted of here. having said that I will try to explain what i'm trying to do.
since i'm new at programing I want to start slow and don't want to add any new things to learn to reach my goal,which is:
a: after I downloaded a csv file I want to automate as much as possibe using (I hope this is the right term) fileDialog to pick the right csv file,there may be many,and put certain rows in many tables. I don't need all the rows all the time because the use of these file may change. Im trying to handicap horses and new ideas may come up and I may want to use the same info in different ways. I don't want to use a server because I only use one computer. The comment from srcalc looks promising but I'd have to learn a lot more to make it work. I also like the idea to use sql to put the info where I want it,but that to will take time for me to learn.
Anyway after I picked a race(csv) that I beleve is a string I can use to put in the program to tell another part of the program what to do with the csv. I don't know if this is clear so I''ll wait for mor input.
thanks again
