I am using the "read csv" operator to import csv, and found several issues of using it. The following is an illustration process, read a csv and write it to another csv. In the original csv, the first column is
, but the output csv file get empty cell for the corresponing position.

Here is the input csv file
column1 column2
3.10E+11 F
3.10E+11 F
Here is the output csv file
column1 column2
The following is the process script
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
<process version="5.3.008">
 <operator activated="true" class="process" compatibility="5.3.008" expanded="true" name="Process">
   <description>This getting started process shows the first step of learning and storing a model.
After a model is learned, you can load (Retrieve operator) the model and apply it to a test data set (see 2. Getting Started: Retrieve and Apply Model). The process is NOT concerned with evaluation of the model.

This process will not immediately run in RapidMiner because you have to adjust the repository path in the Retrieve operator.
