I know this question has been raised many times but I was hoping someone may have found a workaround...

Is it possible to read in a csv file from a location outside of the MQL sandbox, for example a csv that is stored on a shared hard drive?

As I understand it this is not possible with the standard File commands in MQL, but is it possible in the new MT4 builds using the WinAPI functions or by some other work around?

The file I want to read in, it's not possible for me to store it in the MQL folder, so I want to try and read it from where it is. 

Thanks in advance!

Yes it's possible with WinAPI. There are some examples somewhere, you will have to search I am afraid.
