Prompt and Pick CSV Files


Can anyone help me to use this method for csv files.

I tried application/csv and file/csv but not success.



a csv file is a text file and its data type would be text/plain

Hi Taifun,

Thank you for the suggesion.
Unfortunately that also not worked for my samsung J5.
However I checked with LG optimus L3 and it worked for that phone. It looks something wrong with my phone or this method not supported to J5. I will do more tests on next week and let you know the results.
