Resolution

To register a flat CSV file TDM expects the data to be well formatted and structured.
This means things such as
1) column header names in the first row.
2) the file must be a CSV, Comma Separated value text file.( the Piped value will not work)


the size or data does not have to be consistent for each field, IE each column 3 does not have to be 10 characters in length you can have one row with column 3 with 10 characters and another with 50.

We do not support completely unstructured random data nor the user of none comma separator values.


Example of Good file:
Column1,Column2,Column3,Column4,Column5,Column6,Column7,Column8,Column9,Column10,Column11,Column12,Column13,Column14,Column15,Column16,Column17,Column18,Column19,Column20,Column21,Column22,Column23,Column24,Column25,Column26,Column27,Column29,Column29,Column30,Column31,Column32,Column33,Column34,Column35,Column36,Column37,Column38,Column39,Column40,Column41,Column42,Column43,Column44,Column45,Column46,Column47,Column48,Column49,Column50,Column51,Column52,Column53,Column53,Column55,Column56,Column57,Column58,Column59,Column60,Column61,Column62,Column63,Column64,Column65,Column66,Column67,Column68,Column69,Column70,Column71,Column72,Column73,Column74,Column75,Column76,Column77,Column78,Column79,Column80,Column81,Column82,Column83,Column84,Column85,Column86,Column87,Column88,Column89,Column90,Column91,Column92,Column93,Column94,Column95,Column96,Column97,Column98,Column99,Column100,Column101,Column102,Column103,Column104,Column105,Column106,Column107,Column108,Column109,Column1110
