      Hi – I have a folder that includes various files that have different extensions (i’d like extensions to be ignored) and a CSV file that includes the file name as well as a second column with destination folder(s).

      I want to copy the file from the source column(A) into multiple folders identified in column B (with delimiters, or if need to be a new column, that’s fine too).

      Example:  Filename TEST1 Needs to be copied to the folders: Folder1 and Folder2

      Filename Test 2 Needs to be copied to Folder1 and Folder3, etc

      Will you give an example of your csv file?
      Does column A contain a full path or just file basename?
      Does column B use a comma to separate multiple paths?
