Random selection on csv file

Hi All,
I’m from Colorado and am new to both Kintone and this site. Does anyone have a script to randomly search a csv file? We have a csv file of therapists and we want to return 10 matches for people of the Marshal fire but the current view only gives us a choice of ASC or DESC?

Thanks for your help,


Hello @John_Hixson ,

Thank you for posting your question on our Kintone Developer Forum.

It sounds like you want to create a searchable database using your CSV files.
If so, Kintone is a great platform! You can simply import your CSV files to generate a fully-featured web database.

  • You can use CSV files with the maximum sizes of 100 MB, 100 columns, and 100,000 rows, to create a Kintone App.
