It seems that your file has no delimiters

This is really strange, Limesurvey outputs a CSV file without any delimiters. Looks like a bug. I think you can best file an error report at:

@tammo : vv file : delimiter TAB, not the problem here.

VV1 version file , if it's not exactly the same survey : manual.limesurvey.org/Exporting_results#VV_version_1_TSV_file

Right, excuse me. I had only opened this vv-file in a plain text editor and in Excel. Tabs did not show up, but they are there!

I exported a vv file from a survey, copied the survey and imported the answers in the copied survey. This worked without a problem. I will try later what happens when I insert a new question in the copied survey.

Depend of VV version, the survey question code.

VV2 is allowed only if all question code are unique. VV2 don't need update when move survey from a server to another (or add/remove question).
VV1 need update.
