Import and display a text/csv file in Node-RED dashboard

How do I import and display a text or csv file into the node red dashboard? Display as in columns would be great.

You have asked how to do two separate things. Which don't you know how to do and what have you tried so far?

I'm trying to import csv file to dashboard (with columns if possible). How to do it? Thanks for the reply.

As I said, that is two tasks. First read the file, second display it.

okay. I read the file using csv file. I want to display it in the dashboard.

If you search the node red flows library for 'table' you will find there is node-red-contrib-ui-table which you may find useful.
