Hi Gunter,

I think you need to get rid of the "," in your CSV in order to make it work with tabs. Otherwise the , would still be interpreted as part of the number and yield strange results.

Is it live data, or can you preprocess it? A quick sed session could easily transform your CSV into something KST will understand.

Betreff: [Kst] Date and time in csv

Dear list,

Is there a way to read in csv data where the lines have the following

"","2015/02/24","15:36:56",	   0.100,  	  1225.8,   	1001.5,	

Theoretically the lines are comma separated values, but they contain two date-format lines. ...or they could be read as tab-separated values with a cell with a date in a weird format but it nearly looks like kst does not discern between tabs and spaces.

Thanks a lot,
and kind regards,


Gunter Koenigsmann
