open data file (file corrupt)

Post by faresbrini » Mon May 25, 2015 5:58 pm

Hello,
When I try to open my date file (csv), none of the indicators were shown, though the raw file is correct. This happened to me several times. Sometimes, when I try to delete the data, it can't be deleted (an error occured...)

Is this a bug?

Thanks,

Dear Dr,

It seems that when I imported the file (csv) from Excel, SmarPLS doesn't mark any indicators. So, I tried to do it from SPSS (save file as csv), in this case, all got fine.

Thank you for your help,

Regards,

Saving from SPSS as csv is not working for me. I keep getting the corrupt message.

I have the same issue. Any idea how to resolve it. Moreover, I see that I am unable to run the Consistent PLS Bootstraping in my PLS 3 version. Both the data file problem and this problem seemed to have occured around the same time. I did not face such problems a few months before while using.

Yes, you can also send your data to the support, but please make sure that you have read and followed all the recommendations here: https://www.smartpls.com/documentation/ ... ata-import

Especially make sure that you do have only numbers after row 1 (the header row with the variable names). 90% of the problems that we receive have some form of non-numeric character in their data.

I think your csv file is got corrupted and that’s why it’s retain such issues. Ty the following fixes, it will surely end your problem.

• Save the exported file as a csv
• Open Excel
• In the import wizard change the File_Origin to "65001 UTF" (or choose correct language character identifier)
• Change the Delimiter to comma
• Select where to import to and Finish
• Import the data using Data-->Import External Data --> Import Data
• Select the file type of "csv" and browse to your file
