    are you including the quotes or did you just use them to indicate the text?

    Is your .csv file in the right folder? You could specify the full path.
    Have you tried to put both columns in quotes?
    Do you get an error or is the input field empty after the iMacro is done?

    Not sure about Mac, but on Windows (depending on your regional settings) the comma should be replaced with semicolon. Maybe that is the problem.

    Replace the white spaces with (SP) but use the Angled brackets

    Hello, and thank you for your replies.

    I tried something :
    Yesterday, I have a csv file that worked on another iMacro. So I took this file and I modified the content like that :
    "bobo","Diffusion en streaming sur le Net"
    This file, called "arfoo_300c3.csv", works fine with my new iMacro.

    Now, on Excel, I create a new file xls, with the same content (2 cells), and I save it on csv format. I open it in TextEdit to change the ";" to "," and to put double quotes around the cells, like this :
    "bobo","Diffusion en streaming sur le Net"
    This file, called wp_cp_kenka3.csv" doesn't work... :(

    Why ? What's the differnce between the 2 files ? I don't understand...
    Someone have an idea ?

    Look at the 2 files, into the files.zip...

    The 2 csv files look the same.
    No idea, what could be the problem, but I had a similar problem - merging many files into 1 csv and iMacros couldn't read it.
    I solved it by simply making a new text file and copying the contents of large csv file to the text file. Then I rename the text file to file_name.csv and then it works.
    Doesn't make any sense to me, but at least it works.

    OK, I'm going to follow your counsel. You are right : sometimes, the important is that works, in a way or another...
    But it makes me to spend more time, and iMacro is normally to spend less time...

    Thank you for having take time to reply to me.
