I would like to modify a CSV file found at ..

C:\users\user\Desktop\file.csv
A sample of the data is found below.
However there could be thousands of lines.


"Data1","Qty1","Qty2"
"ABC1234","0","0"
"ZDG123","525012","0"
"JKL432","0","0"
"TYI00121-1","0","0".
"No of Items","4",""


I want to modify it using a Script so that it searches through the file and when it sees ZDG123, or any other numbers that I will specify in position 1, that it will take the Quantity showing and divide it by 1000, and then re-write the file with the correct changed data.   For example for line shown above as:  "ZDG123","525012","0",  it will then become:   "ZDG123","525.01","0"

Would this be possible, using a scipt?
