Learn about delimiters, how MindBridge uses them, and how to add a custom delimiter to your engagement.
Delimiters are characters or symbols used to indicate the end of a field, or to split up the values in a column.
Although MindBridge automatically detects common delimiters, it is only able to detect single-character delimiters, such as:
- Comma ( , )
- Slash ( / )
- Pipe ( | )
- Semi-colon ( ; )
If your firm uses a unique delimiter (single- or multi-character), you can have MindBridge detect it by adding it as the new default delimiter.
Add a custom delimiter
Add to new library
When creating a new library, enter your desired custom delimiter to the Default delimiter field.
Add to existing library
On the Library details tab, enter your desired custom delimiter to the Default delimiter field.
Add when importing data
When you import a file, the first step in the import process is Data Validation—this is where MindBridge detects the delimiter used in the file.
To update the default delimiter:
- Find the Delimiter field and select Edit.
- Enter your desired custom delimiter.
- Save your changes.
