Hi.

I need to read all lines from a csv file online.

Set xmlhttp = Server.CreateObject("MSXML2.ServerXMLHTTP.6.0")
xmlhttp.Open "GET", "http://www.url.dk/files/file.csv" , False
xmlhttp.Send
txt = xmlhttp.responseText
Set xmlhttp = Nothing

Now i have the file in the variable txt.
How does i read from txt now.

something like http://www.w3schools.com/asp/met_readall.asp
But I cant read from stream.

In asp.net it´s easy, just like:
StreamReader SR = new StreamReader(txt, Encoding.Default);
But how is this possible in classic?

in classic asp, you would just "split" the value of txt by the carriage/return character

LineArray = Split(txt , chr(10))

and then you can loop from lBound(LineArray) to uBound(LineArray) to take each line individually
