I have worked through the new lessons 15 - 17 and finished lesson 18 and all of it works very good.

1)I have greated two CSV data files using Excel, one file I named Address.csv and the other one I named Office2.csv. I then inserted a Edit box so i could load whichever file I wanted to work with. In the Load procedure I let FileName1 := Edit1.text.-- Both files are in the same folder but I can only get the Address file to load, and when I try to load the Office2 file, a note comes up saying unable to find file because there is no direct path. I don't understand why this happening.

2)Another problem I am having is trying to get the Col Width to fit my Data. For example the Col that Has the area code requires 3 spaces and the Zip Code requires 5 spaces and if I fix all Col to same width I get a lot of lost space.
When you start doing your polishing could you consider or suggest a better Load Procedure and a Col Width Procedure that would fit the average Width needed +1 to fit the data Width.
The lessons have worked out great and I will say it again. You and the Delphi team are very knowledgeable when it comes to programming with Delphi.
Thanks for all your help.
