This is directly from Express Language Help (in Express Administrator for version 6.x) - in the FILEREAD command:

CSV

Specifies that the data is in CSV (comma-separated values) format. You must use the FIELD and SPACE attributes to specify the location of the data in the record. See Table 1.

CSV files are a common output format that is generated by spreadsheet programs such as Microsoft Excel. Each line of characters in a source file is treated as a single record. Each field in the record is separated by a comma by default. You can use the DELIMITER keyword to specify some other character as field delimiter.
If a group of characters in the input record is enclosed by double quotation marks, all of the following rules apply:

n If the group includes the delimiter character, it is treated as a literal instead of as a delimiter.

n If a double quotation mark (") is included in the group of characters, then it must be followed by another double quotation mark.

n If a linefeed character (n) is included in the group of characters, then it is ignored.

n Any spaces or tabs that occur before or after the double quotation marks that enclose the group of characters will be ignored.

-----------
Does that point you in the right direction?
