hi

I'm using this command in ordr to open a .csv file

Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objTextFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile(File,ForReading)

All it's ok and works good.. My only problem is that I need to strat reading from the 4th line skipping line 1,2,3

Is that possibile?

thanks

RE: reading file starting from 4th line

How about this?

CODE

Dim sdata as String
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objTextFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile(File,ForReading)
objTextFile.ReadLine
objTextFile.ReadLine
objTextFile.ReadLine
Do Until objTextFile.AtEndOfStream
    sData = sData & objTextFile.ReadLine
Loop
