This node can be used to read data from an ASCII file or URL location. It can be configured to read various formats.
When you open the node's configuration dialog and provide a filename, it tries to guess the reader's settings by analyzing the content of the file. Check the results of these settings in the preview table. If the data shown is not correct or an error is reported, you can adjust the settings manually (see below).
Note: In case this node is used in a loop, make sure that all files have the same format (e. g. separators, column headers, column types). The node saves the configuration only during the first execution.
Alternatively, the CSV Reader node can be used as it checks the configuration in every iteration of a loop.
