Hello, I had an error come up that has stummped me.  I am using variables and this message came up.

 

Could not parse the file contents as a data set. The name 'ÔªøGroup' is not a variable in the current document.

 

"Group" is one of my variables.  But the "Ôªø"  is not part of anything, anywhere.  I have lots of layers in this

particular data set and they have been working, but this "Group" one is not.

 

UPDATE*  Just to see what happens I changed the name of the column in the CSV file to "ÔªøGroup".  And changed the layer name (variable in Photoshop) to the same thing.  And when I tried to run the data set it gave this message...

It just keeps looking for more crazy characters!!!

Thanks for any advice you can give!

 

- Jim

I haven't had that issue for a long time.  I believe it was fixed by making sure there wasn't any characters like /,&,%,# within the fields anywhere.

Check the text encoding for the csv file. Generally UTF8, but special characters may need a different encoding. Also make sure that the encoding matches when importing.
