Import CSV with 1400+ fields RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I'm trying to import a csv file with over 1400 headers (actually there are no headers, so I need to create them). So far, I've been able to do this, but I would have to write -headers 1,2,3.....1400.

    Is there an easier way to write the column names rather than type all 1400+

    My ultimate goal is to separate this file into several so that MS Access can import them (255 field limit)

  • Import-Csv C:\somedir\filename.csv -Header (1..1400)

    [string](0..33|%{[char][int](46+("686552495351636652556262185355647068516270555358646562655775 0645570").substring(($_*2),2))})-replace " "
