A couple of lines of actual data copied from a text editor tell more
than thousand words.
So you need someone who does the entire work for you which is impossible
without seeing any data.
P.S. -- I don't really want to get good at macro writing, so I am hoping for the
very quickest quick hack, rather than the 500 page introduction to LO Basic. No

I use to suggest a configured solution rather than a programmed one.
Collect all your similar csv in one dedicated directory. The similar
files should share the same file name suffix, delimiters and encoding.
Now you can read this directory of text files as if it were a collection
of database tables. Database tables can be used seamlessly in Writer and
[X] Connect to existing database of type "Text"
[X] Register the new database
Save the new database which is just a configuration file
Close the new database and forget about the database for now.
1) Create a new file.
2) Hit F4 to get the data source window, select one of the tables
_icons_ on the left and drag it into a cell.
3) Apply all the (conditional) cell styles, additional formulas, charts
all the things why you want to use a calculator with text data.
4) menu:Data>Define... and pick the database "Import1" which represents
the currently imported range of data, click "More Options" and check the
2nd and the 3rd option.
5) Save the file as a spreadsheet template.
Using the newly configured spreadsheet template:
2) Hit F4
3) Drag the table over the existing import range and confirm to replace
the old data with the new data.
Alternatively, you can store a fixed document with an import range bound
to one particular text file, say "CurrentData.csv". Check the additional
4th option for the import range so the data won't be stored with the
Usage: Replace the file CurrentData.csv with a new version, open the
document, confirm to refresh the unsaved import range.
