CSV 2 POST

    Under "Your Data" and then "Create Data Import Jobs", when I select the CSV file, and type in a value for columns and choose a separator and quote option, then hit submit, I get errors saying I did not fill in those options (and database failure). But I did. Any suggestions?

    Had a similar issue at the beginning:

    Just 3 hints:

    Did you first upload your csv?
    Double check your csv in a plain text editor.

    Maybe try another browser?

    Regards,
    Kai

    Thanks very much Kai, I tried a one line CSV file as smaller test file, and that seemed to work, so will go from there!

    Sometimes I run in trouble with excel exported csv files and the delimiters.

    Another good hint is using an utf-8 converter after csv file creation.

    It will help avoid any problem with special characters.

    Regards,
    Kai

    Thanks for the tips, Kai! I am not 100% sure of the initial file problem, but for some reason I had left a space in the filename and once that space was gone, it seemed to behave fine.
