dan-pud46922dI'm curious why this is a dead end? CSV file handling is quite a common process using ETL.
If it's really a problem then an honest discussion as soon as possible is best way forward.
M1sf3t385622d@gatoMalicioso yea that last one I think you hit it on the head. The solution is simple, tell them very firmly to evolve or die out with the rest of the dinosaurs.
Also, your given quite a few characters when you post something. It tends to expedite things a little if you utilize as many as you can to fully elaborate on all the relevant details, such as the company not using any sort of consistency that could, at the very least, be predicted and possibly automated.
But in any case welcome to devRant.
CSV is a fairly unforgiving format. You could have validation where if not enough columns (or whatever) it kicks it out then continues processing the next row. Then you can just hand back the errors and let them sort it out for retry later. That's a common error handling pattern for a more manual approach to a batch system. More effort will be able to automate things better
