Problems with CSV import
The program loads the entire CSV file into memory, and then if it is small enough, it will load the entire data set into a string grid. This loading does a lot of error checking. If the program suspects the file will be too large to load into the string grid, it will ask if you want to try anyway.
If you file is extremely well behaved (no missing data cells), you do not have to load it into the string grid, and the import should work.
You can try to load the string grid. Exactly what size will cause problems depends on a lot of factors.
