Although “CSV” means “Comma-Separated Values”, Alpana supports other separators than comma :

  • Comma : “ ,
  • Semicolon : “ ;
  • Space : “
  • Tab : “

Selecting Connection Type

In the “Create Connection” dialog change the Connection “Type” by selecting “CSV” :

connection CSV parameters

Connection Parameters

File Path

Click to browse for a CSV file.

Connection Schema

The CSV Connection presents a single object in the schema : a table with the same name as the file.

Data fields type

Since CSV doesn’t allow to create explicit data types, Alpana has to detect the data types of fields.
If this automatic detection is incorrect, you can always change the data type in the Data Source : Changing Column Type

Data refresh and Buffer

The CSV Connector is bufferized.

If you need to get new data, see Chapter The data Buffer
