File size limit

File size limit

Is there a limit on the size of a CSV file I can add as a dataset? My csv is 3.5mb, and I am having issues uploading it.
I have the free version Talend Data preparation free desktop"
Everything else uploads OK, but this file is struggling!
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Re: File size limit

Hi Sean,
No there is no file limit. In case of large files, Data Preparation Free Desktop will cut at 30 000 rows by default (see And a 3.5 MB file is definitely not an issue so the problem you are facing is not related to the size.
Can you share your logs? On Windows, look for the file app.log in C:\Users\<your user name>\AppData\Roaming\talend\dataprep\logs\
Or even better, could you share the CSV file (assuming it does not contain sensitive data)?
Thank you,
