    importing  data into illustrator with javascript

    Bob Haslett Level 1

      I would like to open a file dialog box seltect a CSV text file saved from Excel and import this into an array/variable/dataset in adobe illustrator using javascript. Have done some work with javascript but not a power user. Can't work out how to get the open dialog to appear.

      Long term aim would be to use the data to plot a path which seems straighwforward enough, its the getting the info in bit I'm stuck on.

      You do have to be able to select the file to import, this bit quite important.

      Any help appreciated
