Hi Experts,
I'm having following csv file format and I want to read that file and should send email alters according to following criteria,
------------------csv file------------------
Query,group,IBM,product
Clam,Senehasa,12345,12345
Jane,SSC,23456,23457
Mmettha,SSC,34567,34566
--------------------------------------------
first line of this csv file contains titles of columns.
If there is any count difference between last two columns(IBM and product) then email altert should send to dushan_desilva@yahoo.com
mentioning that particular row with details.

Also error handling(while reading csv file and sending emails) should write to a log file.

BR Dushan.
