Import fails. I am getting the error message: "first line incomplete"

Solution:

Verify that the first line is identical to the original oisafe.csv file.

Why does this error occur?

This error occurs when trying to import a CSV file into OI Safe.

OI Safe is very sensitive to the first line. When you do the Menu->Export it will create /sdcard/oisafe.csv. When you copy that file to your PC, open it up in something like Notepad, pay attention to that first line. Now either use Excel or OpenOffice to edit the .CSV and export back out to a .CSV file. Now use Notepad again to verify that the first line is identical to the original oisafe.csv file. If it's not, then it just won't work.

If there are extra spaces or the fields are lower-case, any variation will fail.
