I was hoping to be able to just copy filtered chunks of spreadsheet & have it be parsed in a variant of the Import Text Gramplet … without messing with double-quoting Place Titles & names. And without applying an Excel formula to concatenate each row with comma delimiters or having to write the rows to a subsequently importable CSV file.
But the the Import Text Gramplet chokes on tab separated text. And our importer doesn’t recognize
.tsv file extensions nor tab delimited content.
with open("file.tsv") as fd: rd = csv.reader(fd, delimiter="\t", quotechar='"') for row in rd: print(row)
Is there a way to support a different delimiter in our text parser?
