StreamReader reader = new StreamReader("file.txt");
 
string line;
while ((line = reader.ReadLine()) != null)
{
    string[] lineParts = line.Split(',');
    //  Do what you want with lineParts array.
}

I don't see anything wrong with the above, but I can suggest an alternative. Also, I'm assuming your file is line-delimited, and within the lines, it is comma delimited. If the comma-delimited values belong to the line, you can use this, instead:

private System.String[][] OrganizeFile(System.String myFilePath)
{
	System.String[] temp = System.IO.File.ReadAllLines(myFilePath);
	System.String[][] output = new System.String[temp.Length][];
 
	for(System.Int32 i = 0; i < temp.Length; i++)
	{
		output[i] = temp[i].Split(',');
	}
 
	// The first "index" indicates the line, while the second indicates each value.
	return output;
}
