Hi I need to plot a graph in MATLAB using data from a .csv file which has 2 columns of data, column A and column B. Can you please tell me the codes to use to do that? Thanks.

There is no comma in the file. Just two columns of data.

you can do it as follows:
col1 = Array(:, 1);
col2 = Array(:, 2);
plot(col1, col2)
