Re: Problem while importing csv-file

LibreOffice reads the file fine? I don't understand the error message but if there's an issue with line 10, I'd try reading the first nine lines. If that works, I'd examine line 10 carefully. I think the error is that PSPP sees invalid data at some point.

Out of curiosity, does this file have a BOM (byte order marker)? Because I think that's how a program would autodetect the character encoding, but if the program reading the file doesn't know about a BOM, it causes trouble. But usually by making the first label wrong, so probably not an issue here.

Hello,

i have a problem to import a csv-file (comma-delimited) with about 130 variables and 2.900 cases.

I run win11.

I see the file content (screenshot 1) and the next step shows nothing (screenshot 2).

I have taken into account the character set (I set manualy UTF 8 because automatic does not work at this file).
I have tried different variants (csv, ods)

GET DATA
  /TYPE=TXT
  /FILE="C:\....\iab-occpanel_v1.0_2012-2018.csv"
  /ENCODING="UTF-8"
  /ARRANGEMENT=DELIMITED
  /DELCASE=LINE
  /DELIMITERS=","
  /QUALIFIER='"'
  /VARIABLES=
10.1: Fehler: GET DATA: Syntaxfehler: Erwarte Bezeichner. (probably: expect  QUALIFIER)
   10 |
      | ^

Any idea to solve my problem?

Thank you.

Best Greetings

Andreas Hammer
