Parsing Errors

Parsing errors can occur for a multitude of reasons.

ZIP/Archive  Errors

If this error occurs, please attempt to unzip your file and reupload it.

This can also occur when a third-party program/software is used such as 7-zip. 
File Errors

- file exceeds the max number of columns: ____

- File is empty

- Error creating table

- Unsupported file type
File exceeds columns could indicate a problem within a JSON file. Each nested value may get parsed as a separate column value, which can cause the # of columns in a file to increase. 

The file is empty indicating nothing exists on the file. Please open the file in its native format and review if values appear.

Unsupported file type means a file type was uploaded that is not support. Review file types articles
