Multiple downloads indicate that there is a data problem in the latest wallmart CSV file...
Please go to the page and copy the link to this thread, so we will know what file you are having a problem with.
Line 1 and when that is fixed line 4827 so far..
works fine in POI loader for me just now.
Look at line 1... All other CSV's have data.
This one has
I removed the carrots on either side to get it to display
Longitude Latitude POI Name "Address
State Post Code
Line 4826 Ogden Utah is missing an address
Is there a way of downloading the previous version....???
<City> <State> >Post Code> Phone:>Phone>
which is a "Header" row that many POI files contain.
I just loaded it again and it worked.
By the way - when you try to put in a "<" symbol, you need to replace it with "& l t ;" (without the spaces inside the previous quotes). the other symbol would be represented by "& g t ;" (without the spaces)
There is 2 lines with errors...
Line 1 does not have data, but names ....
Line 4826 has no data in the D field...
I tried copying the line from before into this empty field, but it won't copy and paste correctly....
I'm not kidding...
Please explain how to copy 4825D to 4826D and keep the formatting...
That is the only error that remains... I deleted the stuff in line 1 and it passed that point...
Or,,, I guess I could just delete line 4826 and that might get me past this..... ??
I deleted line 1 altogether.. That got rid of that error...
Then I deleted line 4826, the one with no address....
This deleted one WallMart in Utah....
Then, and only then did the CSV successfully load.
That will get me by until the next update...
Thank you for letting us know since I use this file frequently.
Is FINE!! !
Much better formatting, in my opinion.
There is something going on that I think we need to get to the bottom of.
JanJ had a problem and was working hard to debug it for us - which we appreciate.
However, several of us downloaded what we thought to be the very same file that was giving JanJ a problem and it loaded properly for us.
I used both my 765 and 2595 and neither had a problem - each loaded 5225 custom POI on my devices.
It is my experience that a "header" row in a .csv will not cause POI Loader to have a problem.
I did not have a problem loading the entry which had the address "1959 Wall Ave, I-15 Exit 343, Ogden, UT, 84401 ," but which does now show in Excel Col D because there is a "line feed" before the 1959. It just causes the display of the address to be different than if the "line feed" were not there.
Anyway, there is no requirement that there be an address at all. POI Loader help says:
POI Loader assumes a .csv file utilizes the following format for each POI (brackets [ ] denote optional text):
<Lon>,<Lat>,["]<Name>[@<Alert Speed>]["],["] [comment]["]
The only required fields are the Lon, Lat and Name. The 4th field can be anything but most developers use it for the address.
I am using POI Loader 126.96.36.199 (click on the icon in the upper left corner to get to "About POI Loader")
Why do I not have the same problems that JanJ is having????
