DataSource not finding Data

jennmorton@hotmail.com asked 8 years ago
Hello
I am using a .csv file in a map and using the FolderDataSource as my source.
I have my template file and had this map running earlier. Now I am being told there is no data being returned. I see the CSV files in the folder I have designated and am not sure what is going on.
Thoughts?

Thanks
Jenn

Jenn,

The issue turned out to be special characters in your header of your CSV files.  Any special character like a $, #, &, ', etc… will cause an problem with the way the ODBC Text driver reads the file.  The only acceptable special character in a CSV Header is an underscore. 

Thanks,

David
