IMPORT PLAIN TEXT
Category: Import / File
Import a text file without parsing, as is, into a single column.
Most frequently, the action is used to process text files in a format not natively supported by EasyMorph.
|Load file*||Fully-qualified file name of the text file (includes relative or absolute path).|
|Encoding||ASCII, ANSI (with code page), and other types of encoding. If you're not sure what to choose, try UTF-8 as it's
the most common Unicode encoding.
|Column name||The name to assign the input column.|
|Mode||Define whether to import each line as a new row or import all file contents into a single cell. See Mode settings below.|
* Setting can be specified using a parameter.
|Import every line as a new row||Each line in the incoming file is imported to a new row.|
|Import the entire file as one cell||The entire contents of the incoming file are imported to a single cell. See Notes below.|
A text cell value in EasyMorph can be up to 2GBs. The last linebreak is ignored.
This action can import multiple files. See Importing Multiple Files for more information.
