I am recieving this message when trying to populate a lower third with data from a .csv file

 

Could not parse the file contents as a data set. There were too many variable names in the first line of the text file.

 

Can someone tell me why?

 

Thanks

Without seeing your data and how the data fields are set up nobody can really tell you much. There are severe limitations to this process and the slightest malformating or using a wrong data set can throw things completely off. It's not particulalrly foolproof/ hardened.

Thanks,

Here is the CSV I am trying to use data from.

This is what I am try to populate.

I go into Image>Variables>Define and set up my Layers and text Replacement.

I click next and attach the .CSV file then get that message.

Looks like garbage characters left from an empty line in a spreadsheet, delete them as per the attached and try again:
