Hi
I have a CSV file with respondents' names and other details. There are 7 columns with additional attributes (named attribute_1 to attribute_7). I added added these attributes to the questionaire via the Manage Attributes menu.
After loading CSV file, data from five columns are loaded correctly but data from last two attribuest (attribute_6 and attribute_7) are not loaded. On the lits of participants I see fields for these attribues but they are empty. I can add the data manually (record by record) but why loading via CSV does not work?
It seems strange because attributes 5 and 6 are almost identicall (plain numbers) and one gets loaded and other not.

I tried several times.

Please help :)

Have a look at what is different for attribute 6 and 7. There is no space between the number and the "<", while for attribute 1-5 there is a space.

Limesurvey is probably looking for a string "attribute_6" and it only finds something like "attribute_6<#####", which for a stupid machine has obviously nothing to do with what it was looking for. ;-)
