CSV files ....Exit message:record on line 8: wrong number of fields

    Hi Ryan,

    Depending on what you are trying to do the message is expecting the file to be uniform.  What that means is the same number of fields on each line.  You will need to ensure uniformity within your file or make adjustments to your process.

    The process stops on the first "different" line.  So the issue is that Line 7 is different than Line 8.  So you need to really review Lines 1 thru 8 and determine what is the right format and processing rules.

    Thank you,

    Thanks Wayne.

    Any suggestions on how to make the lines uniform, adding in additional comments, something with regex?
