Import of a large CSV file halts after 4GB
Operating system version
Description of the issue
I am trying to import five very large .csv files--each one is about 42GB. On the two files I've tried so far, Filemaker imports about 4 GB worth of data--about 1.2 million records--then stops.
Steps to reproduce the problem
import the file
Filemaker should import about 11 million records
Imports only about 1.1 million records
Exact text of any error message(s) that appear
no error messages appear. The message is that the import went fine with no skips.
This is a very wide file--2000 or so fields. However, I have tried just importing one field at a time and I get the same result.
I have a 2.8 GHz MacBook Pro with 4 GB of Ram, running 10.6.7. Is import file size limited to RAM size?
have not found any.
