Well, there must be a line in your file that do not have the {cr}{lf} delimiter in your columns.

Its important to say that its very weird to use that as a column delimiter, that combination is commonly used as a row delimiter... verify your settings.

Give us your column and your row delimiters

Hello

I see from the screenshot you sent that you used the UNION ALL task, and apart from that, in the e-mail column you have 0, just before the email address.

Also the " symbol is appearing in records which needs to eliminated.

Fixed it - had to convert the file to an excel spreadsheet and import it, which worked fine with ease
