Why isn't my custom delimiter escaping fields properly?

  • Updated

Summary

Learn why the custom delimiter entered into MindBridge isn't separating fields.


Symptom

After entering or selecting a delimiter, the preview of your data does not reflect the header structure as it appears in the imported file. 

The preview may display:

  • data found elsewhere in the file
  • column_A, column_B, etc. as the column headers


Resolution

  • Ensure the file you have imported contains all necessary column headers.
  • Ensure all column headers appear in the first row on the first sheet of the file.


Root cause

MindBridge cannot generate a proper preview because it cannot detect a header row.
