How to Read CSV file from Apex?

How to Read CSV file from Apex display in visualforce?



I recently had to develop a Visualforce page that allowed a Salesforce user to upload a CSV file and then generate some records from the parsed values. Yes, I know that is what the Data Loader is for, but the intended user here was not technically adept. And I thought it was an interesting experiment.




Visualforce page: csvuploadVF

<apex:page sidebar="false" controller="FileUploader">
   <apex:form >
      <apex:sectionHeader title="Upload data from CSV file"/>
      <apex:pagemessages />
      <apex:pageBlock >
             <center>
              <apex:inputFile value="{!contentFile}" filename="{!nameFile}" /> <apex:commandButton action="{!ReadFile}" value="Upload File" id="theButton" style="width:70px;"/>
              <br/> <br/> <font color="red"> <b>Note: Please use the standard template to upload Accounts.</b> </font>
             </center>  
      
      
      <apex:pageblocktable value="{!uploadedAccounts}" var="acc" rendered="{!NOT(ISNULL(uploadedAccounts))}">
          <apex:column headerValue="Account Name">
              <apex:outputField value="{!acc.Name}"/>
          </apex:column>
          <apex:column headerValue="Shipping Street">
              <apex:outputField value="{!acc.ShippingStreet}"/>
          </apex:column>
          <apex:column headerValue="Shipping City">
              <apex:outputField value="{!acc.ShippingCity}"/>
          </apex:column>
          <apex:column headerValue="Shipping State">
              <apex:outputField value="{!acc.ShippingState}"/>
          </apex:column>
          <apex:column headerValue="Shipping Postal Code">
              <apex:outputField value="{!acc.ShippingPostalCode}"/>
          </apex:column>
          <apex:column headerValue="Shipping Country">
              <apex:outputField value="{!acc.ShippingCountry}"/>
          </apex:column>
      </apex:pageblocktable> 
      
      </apex:pageBlock>       
   </apex:form>   

</apex:page>


Apex Class:


public class FileUploader 

{
    public string nameFile{get;set;}
    public Blob contentFile{get;set;}
    String[] filelines = new String[]{};
    List<Account> accstoupload;
    
    public Pagereference ReadFile()
    {
        nameFile=contentFile.toString();
        filelines = nameFile.split('\n');
        accstoupload = new List<Account>();
        for (Integer i=1;i<filelines.size();i++)
        {
            String[] inputvalues = new String[]{};
            inputvalues = filelines[i].split(',');
            
            Account a = new Account();
            a.Name = inputvalues[0];
            a.ShippingStreet = inputvalues[1];       
            a.ShippingCity = inputvalues[2];
            a.ShippingState = inputvalues[3];
            a.ShippingPostalCode = inputvalues[4];
            a.ShippingCountry = inputvalues[5];

            accstoupload.add(a);

        }
        try{
        insert accstoupload;
        }
        catch (Exception e)
        {
            ApexPages.Message errormsg = new ApexPages.Message(ApexPages.severity.ERROR,'An error has occured. Please check the template or try again later');
            ApexPages.addMessage(errormsg);
        }    
        return null;
    }
    
    public List<Account> getuploadedAccounts()
    {
        if (accstoupload!= NULL)
            if (accstoupload.size() > 0)
                return accstoupload;
            else
                return null;                    
        else
            return null;
    }            

}


Finally then try to upload the sample file as below with CSV file format.








That's it !!!!!
