csvRead (file name) - Selenium IDE command

The purpose of csvRead is to read data from a CSV file. Each macro loop reads one line of the CSV file and makes the data in the available with the ${!COL1}, ${!COL2},... internal variables.

Important: To submit more than just the first line of the CSV file, you must start the macro with the LOOP button. Each loop reads one line of the CSV. The line read is based on the value of the ${!LOOP} counter variable. If you make the loop run from 5 to 10, it will read lines 5 to 10 from the CSV file.
