my system is windows 7

error messages:

puts caller, callee
end
csvreader.close

=begin
I assume CSV's auto line ending detection is failing on you data for some reason. A likely cause could be fields that contain line endings different from those used to end lines. You should be able to solve this by setting the :row_sep manually. I would try:

CSV.open(…, :row_sep => "\r\n")

If that doesn't work, try a \n alone.
