Fill web form from text file

Hi all

just looking for some advice on the best way to read a text file and fill in a web
form with the each record in that file?

We need to get about 1000 records into a database and the only
way it can be done is to enter them one at a time via a web form. We have the records in a comma separated text file and would like to just read the file and auto insert the fields into the form.

Weve seen the other posts on this topic talking about simply entering the URL that the form points to with appropriate variables inserted, however the web page is using URL rewrites, so its unclear whether the form is using GET/POST and what the variable names are...

any suggestions?

Thanks in advance - pj

Is there any reason why you cannot just LOAD the CSV text file straight into the database table(s)? What db are you using?
