How to upload and configure semi-structured flat files, .CSV and .TXT files, as datasets.

Updated over a week ago

Uploading a File

1. To begin, navigate to the Datasets view within Savant.

2. In the Datasets view, click on the Upload button.

3. A gray box will appear. You have two options to upload your file:

  • Click on the box to open your file browser and select the desired file.

  • Alternatively, drag and drop the file directly from your local machine.

4. Click Next when the file is finished uploading.



You have the option to enable the "Headerless" configuration. This is useful when your data doesn't have column headers. Enabling this will rename columns as "Column_1", “Column_2”, “Column_3”, “Column_x”, etc. where x is the column number.

File Delimiter

Specify the delimiter character that separates columns in your file.


If your data values contain the delimiter character, you can use a qualifier to preserve the intended structure of the data.

After making the necessary configurations, click "Apply." Savant will automatically suggest the most common delimiter by default.

Preview and Column Management

  • Preview the first hundred rows of your data.

  • Navigate through the columns table at the bottom left corner to select/deselect columns, change data types, and see data fill percentages.

Enable "File Row Number" to append row numbers to your data set.

Naming and Confirming

Provide a name and description for your file, then click Confirm.
