I need to enumerate the CSV headers and search for a header name and save it's column number to the currentRow like this I can add it to a listView. I have a code example and commented code of what im trying to do.  How can I do this?
Using MyReader As New Microsoft.VisualBasic.FileIO.TextFieldParser(filepath)

                MyReader.TextFieldType = Microsoft.VisualBasic.FileIO.FieldType.Delimited
                MyReader.Delimiters = New String() {","}
                MyReader.CommentTokens = New String() {""}
                MyReader.HasFieldsEnclosedInQuotes = True

                Dim currentRow As String() = MyReader.ReadFields

                While Not MyReader.EndOfData
                        currentRow = MyReader.ReadFields()
                        Dim item As ListViewItem
						' Dim NameHeader As Coloumn Header
						' for each header in headers if header = "name"  NameHeader = currentRow(i)

                        If currentRow.Length = 10 Then
                            item = ListView1.Items.Add("TEST")
                        End If

                End While
            End Using
