Well, like I said... 'blind leading the blind'. I was piecing it together from
what I've been exposed to. I had a feeling there was a csv function out there
but not having any experience with it I stuck with what I had seen. Reading up
on the csv file reading function, it does appear to be a *much* better solution
for reading the file and processing the contents!
