Description Alexander Balzer 2011-06-24 04:56:24 UTC
Especially in business it is sometimes required to automate some processes.
The current implementation of csv import does not alow this.

1. the delimiter of the csv file should be auto-detected, so no dialog is needed
2. char set auto-detection
3. provide commandline options in case 1 - 2 fail

related bugs are:
35019 - charset autodetection
38088 - Import csv defaults 
36674 - Importing tab separated file (maybe)

[This is an automated message.]
This bug was filed before the changes to Bugzilla on 2011-10-16. Thus it
started right out as NEW without ever being explicitly confirmed. The bug is
changed to state NEEDINFO for this reason. To move this bug from NEEDINFO back
to NEW please check if the bug still persists with the 3.5.0 beta1 or beta2 prereleases.
Details on how to test the 3.5.0 beta1 can be found at:

Dear bug submitter!

Due to the fact, that there are a lot of NEEDINFO bugs with no answer within the last six months, we close all of these bugs.

To keep this message short, more infos are available @ https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA/NeedinfoClosure#Statement

Thanks for understanding and hopefully updating your bug, so that everything is prepared for developers to fix your problem.
