Required: Petro-Canada.ov2 file

 

Hi Everyone:

I'm a newbie into this awesome forum and require your kind help to convert this .CSV file (http://www.poi-factory.com/filemanager/active?fid=6453) into TomTom .OV2 format.

I've tried all my means (POIEdit and other converters) to convert this file but failed.

If someone has the corresponding .OV2 file (TomTom) for Petro-Canada locations and could please upload then it would be highly appreciated.

Thanks & best regards,
Morrison Z.

You can do it!

.ov2 files for the TomTom can have only 3 columns of info, in that particular .csv (as in most) you have 4 columns. My advice, delete the last column and try converting it again, it should work. smile

Mike: Thanx for your response

Hi Mike:

Thanks a bunch for your reply mate. smile

I wanted to keep the address & category details on the fourth column of the .CSV file. But it seems this column is the root-cause of error while converting it into .OV2

Since I don't have any alternative I would delete the 4th column and try to save this.

Thanks again for your response.

...add the contents of column 4 into column 3, but then you'd have to do some editing. If you've got the patience and the time go for it! wink

Mike: I tried but it didn't work

Hi Mike,

I'd deleted column#3 and then had column#4 in its place and removed the equal (=) signs that show on MS-Excel and then tried to save it. But POIEdit would give an error message "No valid floating point on line#1"
I've read discussion of other forum-users on similar topic and tried to find out the box-like special character but it doesn't show in MS-Excel particulary in this file (http://www.poi-factory.com/filemanager/active?fid=6453)

Thanks a lot for you kind response. I could at least save it into OV2 following your nice suggestions.

Best regards,
MZ
