the help file mentions _FileReadToArray UDF. look into that

the HELP file is great for looking for HELP.

you can also read it line by line if it's a huge file

FileRead & MsgBox.

As suggested, open the Help file and read about some of the many and varied functions that AutoIt gives you - it will save a lot of wear and tear on your keyboard when you keep asking simple questions like this one.
