Reading a CSV

Postby waynesilver » Fri Jan 29, 2010 11:50 pm

I have a CSV file and I am trying to populate a local database on my application. I am trying to make the application generic, so I am hoping to store the file in some common area on the phone, that my program can then access.

Is there a tutorial out there that can show me how to load and access a file on the android?

I figured out this problem.
I used a an input file stream after storing the file on the SD card.

Is there another "Public Access" location on these devices where files can be dropped and used by multiple applications?
