read file separated by tab
I have a file that has 2 collumns separated by a tab.
i want to convert this to an html table
how would I read a line and separate it that it's
<tr><td>coll 1 </td><td>col2</td></tr> for each line
my file is col1 tab col2 now

In ASP, you can use the Scripting.FileSystemObject to search the file for chr(9) (tab) and vbCrLf (Carriage Return, Line Feed), then do a replace.

the replace string would be something like
outputvar = "<tr><td>"
while readline whatever not EOF
outputvar=outputvar & replace(readintextfilecontents,vbTab,"</td><td>")
outputvar=outputvar & replace(readintextfilecontents,vbCRLF,"</td></tr>")
something like that anyway (my god its been years since i've done asp )
