Custom uploading setting not respected when updating file

Hi !

I’m posting this here as a bug and feature-request.

I uploaded a csv file with “;” as a separator as a Dataset.


QuicckSight doesn’t detect it as a separator, but it’s ok, I just have to change the upload settings and it’s all fixed.

The problem comes when I try to update this file with another.


The new file still has “;” as a separator, so all the columns are not detected, thus I get the error :
Fields missing with age and name.
This is because the custom upload setting I set earlier wasn’t taken in account.
For now I can just edit my csv file manually so QuickSight understand the file structure, but it would be nice if I didn’t have to do this in the future.

I basically see 2 solutions:

  1. If there is a cutom upload setting then QuickSight should use it instead of the default.

  2. Ask for the upload setting when previewing the data instead of after importing it.
    Maybe right here :

Let me know what you think

Have a good day everyone

Thanks @Dams . If I understood correctly the request is QuickSight should have a provision for the user if there is a custom decimeter file needs to upload so that user can select the correct delimiter and upload it. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Hi @Max @David_Wong - What is your suggesting on this?
