CSV Text Qualifiers

Postby mikedgibson » Sat Feb 01, 2014 22:42

I have a dataset that imports just find to Weka. I would really like to start using Orange however my CSV file won't load correctly. I have done some troubleshooting and it appears as though the cause may be because some of my fields contain commas within a text qualifier ("). Does anyone know if Orange supports text qualifiers in a CSV file when loading data? If not, any suggestions on how I can get my dataset to load in Orange given that it does contain commas embedded in some of the fields?

Thanks.

The default CSV loader does not handle quotes.
You might have more luck using 'CSV File Import' widget in the Orange Canvas interface (Prototypes section) to import and then and save the data into an .tab file.
