Any recommendations for an iPhone database app that links to a CSV file?

For work I have several thousand pages manuals with not the best index system in the world.

I plan to create an index in an excel spreadsheet with 6 columns with eg

Hydraulics, Fuel Pump, Description, Operations, FCOM 1, 24.10.5, p5.

I wish to access this data in the iphone by being able to search for columns 1-4 and preferable be able to scroll thru any of columns 1-4 alphabetically. I'll also want to resync in the future as I edit.

Any pointers please?

I am not sure quite what you are trying to achieve - have you investigated Bento for iPhone - this seems to be out front for database type applications.
Have a look at Personal Database and Organizer Software | Bento 3 (http://www.filemaker.com/products/bento/index.html)

Thanks - - I had looked at Bento before, but did not think it was exactly what I wanted.

I have looked at it again and can make it suit what I need. I have downloaded the app and working great.

Thanks!
