Building a CSV Import Tool is Hard

It sucks up valuable engineering time and can still fall short of expectations.

Handle Technical Edge Cases


Writing your own CSV parser is easy, right?

What if there are commas inside the fields? What if there are quotes in the fields? What if there is a new line inside a field? What are the accepted newline characters? How to handle character encoding? What if there is an empty line? What if I put a BOM in my file? What if there is invalid or missing escaping? What if there is double or per column string encoding? What if there are truncated columns? What if file is .xlsx instead of .csv?

Anyone who has tried building a parser knows how hard it is.

Code Advanced Import Features


Making the CSV parser usable needs additional development effort to address the user experience and data validation challenges. The CSV upload can easily fail if there are too many columns or rows, the columns don't match or are in the wrong order, some data is missing or the format is different.

Trying to bake in advanced functionality such as file management, CSV column matching, data validation, error handling, user experience, and security is like building an entirely new product in itself.

Address User Experience


Users expect a seamless CSV import free of complexities. They hate having to read documentation or watch video tutorials on how to format and upload spreadsheets. On top, there are a hundred reasons why the upload can still fail. Empty data, format mismatch, browser memory limits, special characters, large data sets can easily freeze the importer or lead to cryptic fail messages.

A bad upload experience can cause the users to question the value of the main product itself.

Strain on Resources


The support team has to deal with additional tickets from frustrated customers who are struggling with imports. Many times it can lead to your team manually cleaning the data and uploading it to the backend. The problem amplifies if there are multiple touchpoints where users need to submit different spreadsheets.

Is it worth to spend hundreds of dollars in development and support costs for an import function?

Great work on this product! We have spent time building an importer but it is such a pain to maintain and we are looking for a tool like this one.

CSVBox has become a key component of our app. Building a data importer was going to take months while now we have a ready importer with all the features that we need. Its a big time saver!

I have built csv importers for so many projects and its not fun. Every few days there would be a case where the import failed and we had to manually solve data problems. If I hadn't found csvbox, I would have built it myself.
