From the JMeter documentation:

Versions of JMeter after 2.3.4 support CSV files which have a header line defining the column names. To enable this, leave the "Variable Names" field empty. The correct delimiter must be provided.

  • Go to jmeter.apache.org/usermanual/get-started.html and search for the word version.

There is a field called "Ignore first line (only used if Variable Names is not empty)", set this to true.
