Hi everyone! I'm just getting started, so probably have a bunch of silly questions. I'm trying to do what seems the most basic test possible: using
to read an excel file on my local filesystem and load it in postgres. I've been following the getting started page twice, once with
which worked fine, but now with the new tap, I'm not seeing anything being loaded. When I run
meltano --log-level=debug elt...
I see:
Copy code
tap-spreadsheets-anywhere       | INFO Found 6 files.
tap-spreadsheets-anywhere       | INFO Wrote 0 records for stream "my_stream_name".
There are indeed 6 files in that folder, so that seems correct, but I'm seeing no errors or warnings, so I'm not sure where to look next. I went through the plugin docs, but nothing obvious there. I've tried all sorts of regex patterns including
which I'd assume would catch any file in there, but no luck. Any suggestions where to look?
