    Csv delimiter bug

    Simo Tumelius

      Hi,

       

      when I open a comma-delimited text file (.csv) with Tableau 10 the separation into columns fails initially. Only after I switch the Field separator (in Text file properties) to any other delimiter and back to 'comma' it separates the columns correctly. Ok, so the columns are fine now but once I make an union with another csv with the same headers, the delimiter swapping does not work anymore. Any suggestions on how to fix this?

       

      A sample workbook and data files can be found in the attached .zip file.
