Max lines to detect text box

The number specifies the maximum number of lines to detect as a CSV document. When a file is opened, EmEditor counts the number of delimiters in the number of lines specified here, and if all lines have the equal number of delimiters, the file is detected as the CSV document. Regardless of this option, the CSV document must be at least two lines. Moreover, CSV formats must be checked in the CSV files to Detect list box in the File tab of configuration properties.

Min delimiters to detect text box

The number specifies the minimum number of delimiters to detect as a CSV document. For example, if one line contains only 3 delimiters in a CSV document, if the number in this text box is 3, this file would be detected as the CSV file. However, if the number in this text box is 4, the file would not be detected as the CSV file. Moreover, CSV formats must be checked in the CSV files to Detect list box in the File tab of configuration properties.

First line to detect text box

The number specifies the line number of the first line to detect as a CSV document. For example, if the first 3 lines of a document do not contain delimiters, and if the number in this text box is 3, EmEditor would ignore the first 3 lines and dectect the rest of the document as the CSV file.

Validate CSV and Output Errors check box

If this is checked, when the CSV mode is switched, EmEditor checks the validity of CSV, and displays issues and information in the Output bar when it detects errors or special status.
