    Cannot refresh Data source based on csv or test file


      I have just upgraded to V7. created a datasource based on a csv file. When I manually or the schedule refreshes the extract it fails with


      com.tableausoftware.vizql.dll.DataSourceException: Unable to open the text file. Please check that you have specified the correct field delimiter and that you have access privileges for the file. Microsoft JET database error 0x80040E37: The Microsoft Jet database engine could not find the object 'OOSBIS.CSV'.  Make sure the object exists and that you spell its name and the path name correctly. The table "OOSBIS#CSV" does not exist.



      Excel base files refresh fine and an excel version of the same file in the same location works fine


      The only thing I have noticed is that the attribute for the csv based data source "Database name" does not have a path and file name

      e.g \\ihc-dc-vms18\set\DataSource\oosbis.XLS


      where as the xls based one does have a path and filename.

      e.g oosbis.csv


      Tried local based files. Files from accessible based shared.  No luck so far
