Please be aware that in CSV format, entries are typically separated by the comma (","). This is the expected format for SMapper.
When preparing a dataset using software like MS Excel or other spreadsheet applications, it is crucial to ensure that the comma symbol is used as the delimiter when exporting to CSV.
Using a semicolon symbol (";") or any other character, which might be the default in certain software packages, could result in problems when running SMapper.
