You basically have no choice but to read the whole file. If you want performance then use a database rather than text files. You can use the Jet OLE DB provider to read the file and then treat it like a database, i.e. use SQL to query it, but it's still going to read the whole file. The alternative would be to read the file yourself and then manipulate the data in your own C# code. It's up to you to decide which way you want to go and then ask us for help with a specific issue if one arises.
We aren't necessarily a code writing service, but ChatGPT can be :)



You can even have an enduring conversation with it, and ask it to make adjustments:


I didn't even tell it why I asked for that improvement, but it surmised anyway:


And yes, I know that I've posted code as screenshots but I did so specifically to encourage you to make an openai account and try the bot out for yourself.. There is a "copy code" button at the top of each block it generates, to make it easy for you to take its suggestion and improve it


Second tip; "lakh" and "crore" aren't commnly used in counting outside of india. You'd be better off using the more typical "groups of three" like thousands, millions, billions or if in any doubt, just the entire number, like 5,400,000 instead of 54 lakhs - after all, using lakhs only saves you one character
