Hi RAMDO Thank you for your answer

If the csv file was not created by your own app, then you have to use SAF to read it

Do you have a txt or csv file?
Make sure you write the file name literally

file type cvs but i also tried with a normal file with .txt extension
If you want to try it create a file in the documents folder and try to read it

Verify that a file exists

for now i have solved it with SAF as suggested by taifun. But later I try to understand why efile doesn’t work for me.
Thank you so much

SAF doesn’t work with file paths.
You need to open saf picker dialog and ask user to give your app access to Document dir. Only then you can create an empty document (not file ) there.
