How to insert data extracted from a csv file?

Added by Marcos Vinicius about 5 years ago

I would like to insert data extracted from an externally loaded table (csv, ods, xls, etc). For example, exam number 1 uses the first line of the file, exam 2 uses the second line, and so on. Is it possible to do this with automultiplechoice?

Yes, I have already done that. My question is, for example:
I use a "student.csv" file like that:

name,forename,id
Boulix,Jojo,001
Golin,André,002
Moniuszko,Stanisław,003

and a separate data file (data.csv) like that:
var1,var2,var3,var4
1,2,3,4
5,6,7,8
9,10,11,12

I want associate the first line of the data file with the first student and so on without putting the data variables as columns of student.csv.

I tried with the datatool package.

\DTLgetvalue{\command}{database}{row number}{column number}
\documentclass[12pt,a4paper]{article}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{datatool,csvsimple} %

\usepackage[bloc,outsidebox]{automultiplechoice}
