Importing Excel Data into Dataiku

davidhernandez Registered Posts: 19 ✭✭✭✭

I am importing my Excel Worksheet into Dataiku, but for some reason my headers are not matching with my data. When uploading a data table into DataIKU, I normally keep the column as it is in the source file, and use a recipe to rename the column later. We can probably manually fix the data, but Dataiku should automatically arrange the data to the correct column. It looks like some of the column data has shifted. What can I do to fix this?

    Hi @davidhernandez

    Can you please post a screenshot of this behaviour (from Excel and from DSS) as this is something that is uncommon to get?

    Hi David,

    I suggest that you have a very close look at the data around where the problem starts, and the delimiters being used to identify a new column.

    The chances are it is an unwanted delimiter in the data - or a missing one.

    good luck

    As an update to my question, I was able to click into the icon in the flow, select Settings, and then select the blue TEST button. After that, I selected PREVIEW, and selected at the very top a button to fix the columns. It now says: "Schema and data are consistent"
