- csv file is a comma delimited data file. how do you create the csv file? thru a tool, text file or excel and save it as csv? sometimes the file becomes corrupt is because the way we create the csv file. if you creating it using excel, make sure you select the csv file format. if you are creating it using a 3rd party tool, it might contain hidden character that is not recognize as csv formatted file. i would suggest you to make a backup of that data file, open it using excel then save it as csv.
- if its still not recognize, alternative way is to open the file using notepad and choose to save as *.*, then specify the filename as filename.csv. see also the general rules of csv file format:
