    If the issue here is simple CSV data there isn't a lot to this:

    B As Single
    C As Single
    D As Single

    Well then you're screwed since the icons can change over time as different programs alter file type registration. They can even change through user interaction via "Open With..." Shell dialogs.

    Re: What is VGA

    VGA is far from the oldest. It was predated by many others. Some early monochrome video adapters used a 9-pin connector that on casual inspection looks similar to VGA's 15-pin connector.
