  • Hi Phillip,

    In the data source "DataFile", you can define the character of the columns in a csv file, in the ejmplo use the separation with "," but in the file that will use uses the character ";"

  • Hi Jerg,

    I am not sure what 'ejmplo' is.

    You cannot configure the CSV type to parse on another character, but you can do that easily enough in the importRow method as String[] row will have your string at index zero. So...

    public void importRow(String[] row, int rowNum) {
      if(row.length == 0)
      String[] rowData = row[0].split(";");
      /* use rowData instead
      ... this.parsedPoints.add(new AlphanumericImportPoint( rowData[0], ... ));

  • Hi Phillips.

    Attachment fragment of our CSV file, as you can see the same uses as ";" character. In the example in Mango use ","

    PVSolarPlant;InsCap(kW);From yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm;To yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm;UTC offset(HHmm);Forecast(kWh);Rad(W/m2)

  • Hi Jerg,

    Did you attempt the solution I provided?

  • Something like....

    import java.text.SimpleDateFormat;
    import java.util.HashMap;
    import java.util.Map;
    import org.apache.commons.lang3.StringUtils;
    import com.infiniteautomation.datafilesource.contexts.AbstractCSVDataSource;
    import com.infiniteautomation.datafilesource.dataimage.NumericImportPoint;
    public class JergForumCsvQuestion extends AbstractCSVDataSource {
    	private boolean headersConsumed = false;
    	private SimpleDateFormat dtf = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm");
    	public void importRow(String[] data, int rowNum) {
    		if(data.length == 0)
    		Map<String, String> extraParams = new HashMap<>();
    		String[] rowData = data[0].split(";");
    		if(rowData.length < 7) //avoid index out of bounds
    		try {
    			//subtract the timezone, or you could put it into the date formatter (or add the timezone, 
    			//it's not always easy to know if they're saying those times are in UTC-5 or those times are UTC)
    			long time = dtf.parse(rowData[3]).getTime() - 5*60*60*1000; 
    			this.parsedPoints.add(new NumericImportPoint("PV Solar kWh", Double.valueOf(rowData[5]), time, extraParams));
    			this.parsedPoints.add(new NumericImportPoint("PV Solar W/m^2", Double.valueOf(rowData[6]), time, extraParams));
    		} catch(Exception e) { System.out.println("Exception: " + e.getMessage()); }
