I want to include a csv file as a table into my overleaf-document.

\documentclass[a4paper]{article}
\usepackage{csvsimple}
\csvautotabular{population.csv}

I have no idea, why it is not working. Does someone know ? ;-)

  • First of all look at the MWE in my answer here: tex.stackexchange.com/a/578577/231952. Then edit your question, possibly providing a MWE. Your code, as it is, can not work: for example, \csvautotabular must be used in the document body not in the preamble

  • Hi Ivan, thanks for your response! I do include it in the document body. Do I have to do overwrite the file as you did? (That would be a huge amount of characters) ``` \begin{filecontents*}[overwrite]{test.csv} game id,start,dimensions,number of players,error type,survived rounds,avg iter dur,max iter dur 1,,{(46, 58)},6,--,3,0.0189638150252525,0.070585 1,,{(46, 58)},6,--,3,0.0189638150252525,0.070585 ... 6,,{(42, 71)},5,--,63,0.006719767371205704,1.936 \end{filecontents*} ``` Mar 6, 2021 at 21:09

    You do not need filecontents in the real life. It's mostly useful for producing minimal working examples.

  • Well, then I still don't know my mistake. I did everything exactly like you suggested :( Do you know another package which I could try? Mar 7, 2021 at 7:48
  • in order to help you, you should open a new question, provide a MWE and explain the details of your problem in more depth. If the code of my answer below doesn't work, it's probably an Overleaf issue.

Suppose we have this external test.csv file:

Lorem,Ipsum,Dolor,Sit,Amet
one,one,one,one,one
two,two,two,two,two
three,three,three,three,three
one,one,one,one,one
two,two,two,two,two
three,three,three,three,three

Then the following code

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{csvsimple}

\begin{document}
 
 \csvautotabular{test.csv}

\end{document}

will produce this:
