Read CSV ( Line X contains more values than the header Line)

Hi All,

Can someone point me out how to solve this error while reading CSV file


I m having an error while trying to read CSV file due to some value of the row contain more values than the header line in this case (.) at the end of the value.

Below is the example format of the CSV


I don’t’ want to use each to loop through the whole CSV file as the records have more than 100000 rows.

I need to convert the output DT to JSON.

I can use Invoke Code if necessary.

Thank in advanced.

@whitestar Did you find a solution to this. I’m facing a similar issue at the moment.

Look like this issue was caused by my code using a Read CSV activity to read an Excel Workbook.

Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a solution to solve this other than using third party c# library. I had to find an alternative way to get the output.

Okay, thanks anyway @whitestar

I had a similar problem and the solution was in the delimiter, in the properties tab.
