Variable length calculation in importing delimited text data wizard
When importing data only 1000 lines are used for preview.
It automatically will calculate the width of the variables based on - only the first 1000 lines???
What this can do is lead to truncation of your variable. My ID contains 12 digits for example
Can you offer a feature / tickbox where it can scan through all your data to determine the maximum length?
Basically I managed to spot this truncation but worried others would not spot it and get incorrect data.
Great software anyway, its blindingly fast. I’m stunned by its speed!
