Having trouble connecting to external data source


I have tried to link to an external csv file with the Barcode Label Software but I get an error every time I try. I have tried changing the csv file to have quotes surrounding the data and not to have them, but still nothing. There are 128 records in the file, but I have tried shortening it to 16 too.

Here is a sample of the data:
"200114","S1 Forestman","16.00",
"200115","S1 Deep Sea Diver","8.00",
"200116","S1 Cowboy","14.00",

Thanks,

Ken

Operating System: Windows XP SP3

You may want to embed the data directly.

I tried the file on 3 different XP SP3 machines and all failed. Installed on Win 7 64bit Home Premium and it worked fine. I then tried on XP SP2 and it worked fine also. So there must be something on a fully patched SP3 machine that messes it up.

Thanks for the help,

Ken

I am using the free version that I just downloaded from the website on Monday.

What version of the Label Software are you running?

If there are no security issues with your data, please send the CSV file to us.
