What is Silk Performer"s current functional support for reading from (or editing) a .csv file, using column "name" as an identifier?

Currently, Silk Performer does not provide support for column-identification by name in its FileGetCol function.

Silk Performer allows .csv file columns to be identified by number, via the FileGetCol function (see Help for a full overview of the File function family). In conjunction with the FileGetRow function, it allows you to identify a particular .csv field.

Some users have expressed an interest in identifying columns by name, rather than by column number (where they have named column headers within their csv file). One reason for this is that any changes made to the ordering of a csv file"s columns may cause incorrect data to be returned from an existing file-query in a bdf script.

An enhancement request for name-support has been logged for consideration in a future version of Silk Performer.
