  • Thanks for the details- have taken trial version of DWC. Not sure where is the issue- when I click on upload CSV file- process begins but no file gets loaded finally – there is no error message either. Any thoughts on this – what could be the issue?

     

    best regards

    • Hi Nilesh,

      Please check the entries in your CSV file whether there is a cell containing more than 5.000 characters. There is limitation of 5.000 characters. If the limit is reached, the upload attempt will fail.

      Best regards,
