.csv to a string array

Go to solution



This is probably a simple problem, but I have a csv file with string values in one column and numbers in another.  For example:


Volume,    6

Diameter,  5


But much larger of a file.


I would like to be able to read the first column in and come up with an array of just the strings.  I have tried using the Read Text from file into the Spreadsheet string to Array into the Index Array functions, but I cannot seem to get this string array to work out, as it just comes up with 0's for any text.


If anyone can point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated. 


Thank You!!

Hi sean,


you have to convert to an array of strings! Then you will receive your first column as text data...
