Update a column value in csv files

Hi all
I am new to scripting and i have an application from which i will export into a csv file as follows

Column1, Column2, Column3
Sno1, Folder\Test.txt, Fail
Sno2, Folder\Test1.txt, Pass
Sno3, Folder\Test2.txt, Fail

Now i need to change the column2 in all the rows from "Folder\"
to "C:\MyApp\Folder\".

Can anyone help me in doing this.

Thanks to all in advance.

To keep the forums high quality for all users, please take the time to format your posts correctly.

First of all, use Code Tags when you post any code or data samples so others can easily read your code. You can easily do this by highlighting your code and then clicking on the # in the editing menu. (You can also type code tags [code] and [/code] by hand.)

Second, avoid adding color or different fonts and font size to your posts. Selective use of color to highlight a single word or phrase can be useful at times, but using color, in general, makes the forums harder to read, especially bright colors like red.

Third, be careful when you cut-and-paste, edit any odd characters and make sure all links are working property.

Thank You.
