CSV file contains Comma separated values, records are distinguished by new line. By using split function we can get records easily.
Source Code        DEMO

Program Flow

  1. Get CSV file content using HTTP request
  2. Process CSV file data
  3. Format JavaScript object and display it in a table

Markup to display CSV content in Table

The below markup shows csvData in table view
<table border="1" class="demoTable">
   <tr *ngFor="let x of csvData">
      <td *ngFor="let y of x">{{ y }}</td>

Script - app.component.ts

Observe readCsvData and extractData functions. readCsvData functions sends GET request to server for CSV data, Once it got CSV data,  It will call extractData function, which will convert CSV data to two dimensional array.
import { Component } from '@angular/core';
import { Http, Response } from '@angular/http';

  selector: 'my-app',
  template: `
  <h2>CSV Data</h2>
    <button class="btn btn1 btn2" (click)="readCsvData()">
       Read CSV Data
    <table border="1" class="demoTable">
      <tr *ngFor="let x of csvData">
        <td *ngFor="let y of x">{{ y }}</td>
export class AppComponent {
  csvUrl: string = 'sample.csv';  // URL to web API
  csvData: any[] = [];

  constructor (private http: Http) {}

  readCsvData () {
      data => this.extractData(data),
      err => this.handleError(err)

  private extractData(res: Response) {

    let csvData = res['_body'] || '';
    let allTextLines = csvData.split(/\r\n|\n/);
    let headers = allTextLines[0].split(',');
    let lines = [];

    for ( let i = 0; i < allTextLines.length; i++) {
        // split content based on comma
        let data = allTextLines[i].split(',');
        if (data.length == headers.length) {
            let tarr = [];
            for ( let j = 0; j < headers.length; j++) {
    this.csvData = lines;

  private handleError (error: any) {
    // In a real world app, we might use a remote logging infrastructure
    // We'd also dig deeper into the error to get a better message
    let errMsg = (error.message) ? error.message :
      error.status ? `${error.status} - ${error.statusText}` : 'Server error';
    console.error(errMsg); // log to console instead
    return errMsg;
