OK, so, I think I can confidently say that it's an issue on my PC. Did two successful imports on my second PC running RW with files I created with Farling's tool - one using the containing article feature and one I did before that - both worked without issue.
So I think I need to nuke RW on my home PC, any ideas how to completely wipe it to start again?

Thanks for all the help guys and sorry for any concern caused Farling, it's a great tool and I'm loving using it

PS - Any good sources for CSV databases apart from pathfindercommunity.net?

Realm Works expects UTF-8.

I suspect this issue may be due to some sort of corruption with your .NET Framework install on that computer. Several things to try:

1) Try and re-install the .NET Framework 4.0. An installer is available from here:

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/down....aspx?id=17718

2) If that doesn't work or fix things, try this tool:

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/down....aspx?id=30135

3) If that doesn't work, try the directions from this answer:

In a recent release of Realm Works, we started using a part of .NET that we hadn't used before during the import process. Some users have been having a problem with this that appears to be some sort of corruption of the .NET Framework on the computer.

Excellent, thanks David, I will try that when I get home

Interestingly none of the above worked but I noticed in the third option someone referenced a registry key so I cleaned up my registry and bingo, imported ok

Thanks for the help.

Can you provide details on how you did that? One of my PC's has gone through all of David's steps and it didn't resolve the issue. I'm working on Enterprise version of Windows 10 though so most of the troubleshooting wasn't actually possible.

Just ran the registry cleaner in CCleaner and it fixed my issue.

IF it is a registry key that makes a difference, maybe run a disk checker to see if the registery is getting corrupted?

This is perfect for something I have been thinking of for ages! Thanks Farling!

Sleet was enjoying a tasty beverage at his local tavern, when a Tarrasque showed up in the local area. He managed to valiantly get on it's back and ride it. How he did it is a mystery to this day...
