Here's a simple example...

' Define I/O constants
Const ForReading = 1
Const ForWriting = 2

' Define constants for file to process, and pattern to match
Const strInFile = "c:\temp\control.csv"

' Open input file for processing
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objInFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile(strInFile, ForReading)

' Read each line and display all matches on that line
Do Until objInFile.AtEndOfStream
   strLine = objInFile.Readline
   arrField = Split(strLine, ",")
   Wscript.Echo "P1=" & arrField(0)
   Wscript.Echo "P2=" & arrField(1)
Loop

' Wrap up
objInFile.Close
Set objInFile = Nothing
