Error uploading CSV

I received an error message while uploading a CSV file. Essentially Power BI has taken around 1000 rows and scrambled them into broken fragments (see below screenshots).


Any advice on how to avoid errors with uploading CSVs would be greatly appreciated. Cheers.

Hi @LiamWhite ,

Could you please check if the format of your data is correct or could you please show the detai error information for your data?

Hi Daniel,


I uploaded the file as an Excel Workbook and for some reason this fixed the issue. I'm not sure why an Excel Workbook would be more compatible than a CSV though.
