Too many fields in delimited text file error when uploading

Symptom
  • You get the error message "Too many fields in delimited text file" when uploading a text file via the Project client
Applies to
  • CONTENTdm
Resolution

A row in the file you are uploading has characters in the column that follows the last column with a header. Check for overflow into that column and move the data back into the correct columns.  If you don't see any data in that column, delete the column that follows your last header in case there are stray blank spaces there that you can't see. Save the file and reload.

If problems persist, contact OCLC Support with your CONTENTdm server number, the error you are getting and the file you are working with.
