SAP Design Studio 1.6 local mode CSV datasource not working


Hi All,

I was curious about the new csv datasource feature within SAP Design Studio 1.6. So I created a new project within DS 1.6 local mode and added a csv as datasource. So far so good, but when I try to edit the initial view I get an error : ‘Failed to instantiate data source. See error log for details’.

The messages in the Error log :

Cannot load InfoProvider "local/CSV\CSV3.csv" (data provider "DS_1": Exception opgetreden bij creëren)

And some “Unexpected Exceptions”

Based on above I got some questions :

Does the CSV need to be in some sort of special format?

What are the limitation using a CSV as a datasource in Records and Cells?

Is there something I’m doing wrong?

Thanks a lot!
