>>> Hi,
>>> I was using in the past (MKII) a snippet of code to produce (natural) tables from CSV. I was trying to compile my code with MKIV, but this does not work anymore. As a matter of fact, it doe snot work at all, nor MKII, nor MKIV (probably my error !).
>>> So I came back to the wiki, where my code came from, and the code below is just a copy for the wiki. It is supposed to make a table with three columns, but there is only one column in the resulting table…  I admit I do not understand the code, but is there is missing \eTR somewhere ?

> Wolfgang, thanks. I have seen the use if the database module on the wiki, but was trying to do without it, the reason is that my documents are often shared with colleagues, for which installation of modules is most often very difficult.

There is nothing to install because the database module is part of ConTeXt.
