Hi, all.

I'm trying to add an excel table do geocode some cities. I'm using only "Country" and "City" and I'm always getting a red error message saying "There is an error!".

What is wrong? I need more columns to geocode, more detailed than "city"? The table is very simple with names, population and density, no special characters, nothing.

 

any help wil be much appreciated

thanks in advance

Yes. I can added it in CSV, but couldn't fix the codepage (something wrong between Ansi and UTF-8). Anyway I fixed it, cleanned formats in Notepad, saved as UTF-8, but the codepage was always wrong after added it.

The behavior was strange. Never happened to me.
