Default Array from file

I need ASP code to fill an array from a text file. The text file exists in the same physical directory as the ASP page.

can be done using the FileSystemObject component. When opening a text file you simply open it as a text stream, and it is this text stream that you use to access the contents of the file....

Is your file delimited (example: is it an excel file delimited by commas, etc...)?

How large is your file?

If the file is relatively small you can use the Split method combined with the FileSystemObject that mat41 suggested.
