VS 2008 C# Text File Import

Last Modified: 2013-12-16
I am being sent a pipe delimited text file with about 100 fields in it. I only care about 8 of them. How  do I set up the VS C# program to read this text file and then extract only the 8 values that I need? What kind of text reader do I use and how do I set up the extractions?
