So basically, I have a csv in S3, it has just two columns but I’m getting this error. It doesn’t make sense to me so I figured I’d create a question. I’m just trying to understand how we have to arrange the columns so it loads properly, but yeah this seemed weird so I figured I’d ask here.

Hi Brian,

For S3 is important to make sure that the the CSV imported and used in the creation of the LDM, matches the cvs’s of the new loads. I find this tutorial very explanatory for the steps to follow for S3:

Can you double-check that setup of the LDM and that the datasets have the same columns? Can you send a screenshot of the LDM, specially for dataset.testdata ?

Thanks for the quick response


That very well could be the problem, as I was figuring out how the csvs should look, and I certainly got it wrong the first time. I havent changed this data model, but I have changed the csvs. I created the data model manually, I didn’t drag and drop a csv. 


Here is a screen of testdata:
