Thread: Text file input, no header

  1. #1

    Default Text file input, no header

    I am trying to load CSV files via the text file input step in spoon. My CSV files come from an external vendor with no header row. This causes the step to label them "field 1, field 2, etc...". I am happy with this, but the Select Values step does not seem to be. It recognizes those names in the stream when I am configuring it, but when I run it, it gives me an error saying that it cannot find field 1 in previous step. Not sure what to do next.

    Hi Matt,

    Just verify the transformation and solve the problems.
    If you're sending rows withouth "field1" to step "Select Values" then this is obviously a problem.
    Check for spaces in field names, etc. This is sometimes difficult to detect manually. Verify will bring these issues forward.

    All the best,
