Example 1 (Delete all contents of a CSV file):

This example creates a local variable named CSVFile with Text as its data type and stores the path of the CSV file.  The initial contents of the CSV file named Items.csv are then deleted in another action script. After the content of the file was deleted, the File Read action showed no contents inside the Items.csv file. A notice is then displayed via Message Box.
