Simple 2D array creation from tab delimited file

Recommended Posts

G'day everyone

I have a two-column tab-delimited text file. In other words, each line contains text plus a tab plus more text plus a line break. I would like to add the entire file to a 2D array, in which the file's content is first split by line break and secondly split by tab.

I don't know the syntax for doing that -- can anyone please tell me how?

Nested StringSplit loops would seem to be the solution - give it a go and see how you get on. There are a number of CSV_File_to_2D_Array examples on the forum to get some pointers should you feel the need for a bit of inspiration. ;)
