Using VB6 I am trying to open a log file and then display in a textbox (txtOutput) certain information.  I have included a csv as an example.

I need to open the csv and search for the 1st instance of "PBSTAT_START".  The timestamp for that line should be returned.  If there is no such line then "NO MOVES" should be returned and the sub should exit.

If "PBSTAT_START" is found then the file should be searched for the number of lines which have "PBSTAT_START".

Does this make sense?
