Dim strRecord As String
Dim sTokens() As String
Dim x as Integer
Dim sTemp as String

cntLINE = 0
Open "C:\Test.CSV" For Input As #1
Do While Not EOF(1)
   Line Input #1, strRecord
         sTokens= Split(strRecord,",")
         For x = 0 To UBound(sTokens)
                sTemp = sTokens(nI)
               additional code here to do whatever is required with the substring
              ' put the substring to the flexgrid.
         Next x
Loop
Close #1

The below does not work as you can see from my image
Private Sub mnuLoadCSV_Click()
Dim strRecord As String
Dim sTokens() As String
Dim x As Integer
Dim sTemp As String
Dim strRow As String
 
 
 
On Error Resume Next
Dim FileName As String
With CommonDialog1
    .FileName = ""
    .InitDir = App.Path & "\lists"
    .Filter = "CSV Files (*.csv)|*.csv"
    .ShowOpen
    FileName = .FileName
End With
If Len(FileName) Then
 
Open FileName For Input As #1
Do While Not EOF(1)
   Line Input #1, strRecord
         sTokens = Split(strRecord, ",")
         For x = 0 To UBound(sTokens)
                sTemp = sTokens(nI)
                MSFlexGrid.AddItem sTokens(0) & vbTab & sTokens(1) & vbTab & sTokens(2) _
                                    & vbTab & sTokens(4) & vbTab & sTokens(5) & vbTab & sTokens(6) _
                                    & vbTab & sTokens(7) & vbTab & sTokens(8) & vbTab & sTokens(9) _
                                    & vbTab & sTokens(10) & vbTab & sTokens(11) & vbTab & sTokens(12) _
                                    & vbTab & sTokens(13)
                                    
         Next x
Loop
Close #1
End If
End Sub

before the for next loop... add this code...


MSFlexGrid.cols = ubound(sTokens)
For x = 0 To UBound(sTokens)
                sTemp = sTokens(nI)
                MSFlexGrid.AddItem sTokens(0) & vbTab & sTokens(1) & vbTab & sTokens(2) _
                                    & vbTab & sTokens(4) & vbTab & sTokens(5) & vbTab & sTokens(6) _
                                    & vbTab & sTokens(7) & vbTab & sTokens(8) & vbTab & sTokens(9) _
                                    & vbTab & sTokens(10) & vbTab & sTokens(11) & vbTab & sTokens(12) _
                                    & vbTab & sTokens(13)

I do see an issue. The CSV has two delimiters: comma and quote+comma. How do I get it to split with both in mind?

use the "replace" function  to replace the quote+comma with comma only before you split the line record...


sumthing like this...

strRecord = replace(strRecord,"<quote+comma>",",")
sTokens = Split(strRecord, ",")
