I see in trunk (and presumably GDAL 1.7) that the CSV driver has some undocumented support for detecting the CSV seperator. What version of GDAL are you running? Could you provide a small sample file demonstrating your problem as an attachment?

Chaitanya,

I'll turn this over to you to follow up on. Also please ensure that the csv driver docs are updated to reflect the fact that seperators can now be detected. It may also be appropriate to add some tests for this in the autotest suite if they aren't there now.

I'd note that the doc was updated in the same time as the code : see r16759 (tested in r16760). So my guess is that timmie doesn't use GDAL/OGR 1.7.0
