when the program reads a csv file and complains "input past end of file", does that mean there are characters past the EOF? (maybe an extra space etc)

what else could it be?

hello    there
No  it means you could have a spare carriage return in the  csv file! so you do one extra loop

 check to see if its there

This error is usually related to VB code used to "Read" a text file.
ex:
Open "C:\YourFolder\YourFile.csv" For Input As #1
...

Here is what the first hit in google had to say.
Perhaps it will help:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/1k5e45de%28v=vs.80%29.aspx
To correct this error
   1. Use the EOF function immediately before the Input statement to detect the end of the file.
   2. If the file is opened for binary access, use Seek and Loc.

<i am using access code.>
If the info in the link does not help, then can you post the code you are using?

What is the goal in reading the file?
Since you posted this in the Access zone, I will presume you want to import this file into Access as a table?
If so, then the standard Access code will not generate this error, and if this is a true CSV file, and there is in fact only one CRLF, then Access will ignore the one trailing CRLF and import the table just fine.

If however there is more than one CRLF (And you are indeed sure this is in fact a CRLF, and not some other non-printable character) Access will simply create blank rows for each additional CRLF beyond the first one.

    DoCmd.TransferText acImportDelim, "YourCSVImportSpec", "YourTableName", "C:\YourFolder\Test.csv", True

Obviously to use this code you must have done the import once, saving your settings as an Import Specification.
