limit rows
for testing purposes it is sometimes useful to limit the number of rows to read in and thereby reducing the amount of time it takes to load data and execute the workflow. If this is set to zero all lines are being read in.
Validation level
if set to strict exceptions will be produced, if set to lenient warning, and if set to silent non-conforming lines will be read but you won't be notified.

Output Ports

Data table
