Hi Experts,
I'm having following csv file format and I want to read that file and should send email alters if last column values are difference
------------------csv file------------------
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 alert should send to dushan_desilva@yahoo.com
mentioning that particular row with details and it should be in red color as attached image with additional delta field.

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


BR Dushan.
