How to fix "Error rendering macro 'csv' : null"

I am trying to use the csv macro in a new confluence page and keep getting the null pointer error message:

Error rendering macro 'csv' : null

Here is the simple test data I have been using just in case the data I really wanted to use had an error:


I have already read the csv macro help page and watched the video, but it hasn't helped.

Since it seems to be a Bob Swift Macro, I'll just mention him right here smile

Your example is fine. It is pretty simple stuff, so I would suspect some sort of installation issue. What version of Confluence are you on and what version of the add-on?

  1. Go to Manage add-ons and find the Advanced Tables add-on. 
  2. Uninstall
  3. Go to Find add-ons and search for Advanced Tables and re-install it 

I didn't realise that this was a paid for add-on, now I see the problem, its not enabled, I'll have to uninstall this unfortunately. I had assumed that it came with Confluence, oh well, thanks anyway Bob, its a useful macro.
