Using csv to define dropdown menu list

I am trying to automate my dropdown menu list from a csv file, so that when I update the csv, the menu list also updates.  I can't work out how to access these values and there doesn't seem to be any thread covering this. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

You cannot fully automate this because dropdown menu cannot be linked to CSV file. Instead, you can write a script that will update the contents of the dropdown menu on a button click using the following function:
