    here ya go. This is the way to get iMacros for FF to pull data from a .csv file.


    VERSION BUILD=6240709 RECORDER=FX


    SET !ERRORIGNORE YES
    SET !ERRORCONTINUE YES

    'PUT YOUR .CSV FILE IN THIS FOLDER
    SET !DATASOURCE C:\macros\Datasources\filename.csv

    'SET THE COLUMNS NUMBER TO MATCH THE # OF COLUMNS USED IN YOUR CSV FILE
    SET !DATASOURCE_COLUMNS 12

    SET !DATASOURCE_LINE {{!LOOP}}

    TAB T=1

    URL GOTO={{!COL1}}

    yes i can confirm that you can use csv with the free FF plugin. You define the folders that data files are by going to the options etc. If you dont change anything you put your files in documents/imacros/datasources and then you just write:

    SET !DATASOURCE file.csv

    Try the following:
    • Make sure you have set datasource columns to one.
    • Make sure that the file is correctly saved as a csv. Its size should be no more than a kb or two.
    • Check you filepath if its alright. If you have spaces anywhere in the filepath, you must replace them with "<SP>".

    also make sure, that your .csv looks like this if you open with text editor:

    "data1","data2","data"
    "data3","data4","data6"

    also: for some reason all lines must be the has some value in all columns.

    Hey whiteshark,

    Let's suppose the Path to your csv is:
    Code:
    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop\urls.csv
    In this case, you must replace all the "spaces" with "<SP>" for it to work properly. The path to be written in the macro, thus, is:
    Code:
    C:\Documents<SP>and<SP>Settings\All<SP>Users\Desktop\urls.csv
    Hope that Helps.

    Hello again white,

    Not sure if I understand your question correctly. But I'll try.

    First off, its not cvs, its CSV (Comma Seperate Values). You do not have to replace any spaces within the file contents if that's what you mean. You just have to replace the spaces from the file path you provide to your macro.
