  • Hi, I am very new to Mango and have been working on taking CSV files and making their columns into data points. I used the default multi column CSV importer which works fine, I get my columns as data points inside my CSV data source in Mango. My issue is that it will only create points for the last row. How can I get all or even a select few rows?

  • I'd advise showing us a copy of your CSV for what you're trying to insert then perhaps we can point out if an oversight has been made or recommend a new CSV importer class to import your data. Remember to use the code tags (</>)!

    public class MultiColumnCsvImporter extends AbstractCSVDataSource {
    	private Map<Integer, String> headerMap = new HashMap<Integer, String>();
    	public void importRow(String[] row, int rowNum) {
    		//Strip out the header row, it does not contain our data
    		if(rowNum == 0){
    			for(int k = 0; k < row.length; ++k) {
    				this.headerMap.put(k, row[k]);
    			//Column 0 is the time
    			Integer Id = Integer.parseInt(row[0]);
    			//Empty additional parameters
    			Map<String, String> extraParams = new HashMap<String,String>();
    			//For each additional column we will create an Import Point
    			for(int i=1; i<row.length; i++){
    				String identifier = headerMap.get(i); //Get the identifier from our header map
    				double value = Double.parseDouble(row*); //Create the value
    				NumericImportPoint point = new NumericImportPoint(identifier, value, Id, extraParams);


    So here you can see data points for only the last row.

  • Have you gone to data point details and looked at the points in detail?

  • @mattfox thanks so much for the help, I made a silly mistake but I am glad it made me more familiar with Mango. I ended up crafting quite the nice CSV importer with some bells and whistles.

  • Nicely done, if you're willing to share I'm confident others can definitely learn from your approach!
