Stefan,

Yes, I can!

line of data:

1,1,,,2

> F = csvread('inc.txt')

F =

1 1 0 2

The line in my data that gives me an error has a lot of sequential commas,

and if I use only that line as input data, I get a size of 74 columns

rather than the correct 84. So... I missed some whitespace.

I notice that Octave translates empty cells as "0"; does it have a way to

mark them as empty without assigning a numeric value?
