parse data from csv file to webpage

I have a csv file that has 7 columns and 1974 rows. this csv file is automatically put in the folder every 5 minutes and the old one is just overwritten. I have no way of making this a template file so what i need to do is get this data into something that will allow me to pull data out of it and post to a webpage metric table. column A is the column that had the "name" i would be looking for to decide what data I am wanting to post. The webpage would be an ASP page and I am familier with using vbscripting code and pulling data that way. I have attached a sample of how the CSV file is formatted.
testWeb.csv

Try this

<%
Const ForReading = 1

Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile("C:\inetpub\wwwroot\folder\testWeb.csv", ForReading)
response.write "<table>"
Do Until objFile.AtEndOfStream
    strLine = objFile.ReadLine
    arrFields = Split(strLine, ",")
    
	response.write "<tr><td>"&arrFields(0)& "</td><td>"&arrFields(1)&"</td><td>"&arrFields(2)&"</td><td>"&arrFields(3)&"</td></tr>"
 
Loop

objFile.Close
%>

If you need to filter the first column of what I posted, you could do

<%
Const ForReading = 1

Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile("C:\inetpub\wwwroot\folder\testWeb.csv", ForReading)
response.write "<table>"
Do Until objFile.AtEndOfStream
    strLine = objFile.ReadLine
    arrFields = Split(strLine, ",")
    
    if arrFields(0)="Greek" then
	response.write "<tr><td>"&arrFields(0)& "</td><td>"&arrFields(1)&"</td><td>"&arrFields(2)&"</td><td>"&arrFields(3)&"</td></tr>"
 end if
Loop

objFile.Close
%>
