Summary0003650: Documentation on website for csv files has not been updated
DescriptionThe documentation about using of csv files in boundary conditions has not been updated.

For OpenFOAM 8 at https://cfd.direct/openfoam/user-guide/v8-boundaries/#x25-1770005.2 it is still given:

inlet
{
    type uniformFixedValue;
    uniformValue
    {
        type csvFile;
        nHeaderLine 4; // number of header lines
        refColumn 0; // time column index
        componentColumns (1); // data column index
        separator ","; // optional (defaults to ",")
        mergeSeparators no; // merge multiple separators
        file "dataTable.csv";
   }
}

This should probably read like:

inlet
{
    type uniformFixedValue;
    uniformValue
    {
        type tableFile;
        format csv;
        nHeaderLine 4; // number of header lines
        refColumn 0; // time column index
        componentColumns (1); // data column index
        separator ","; // optional (defaults to ",")
        mergeSeparators no; // merge multiple separators
        file "dataTable.csv";
   }
}

Correct, the OpenFOAM-8 online documentation has not been updated yet, would you like to contribute to OpenFOAM maintenance for this kind of work?

See https://openfoam.org/news/funding-2021/

If not you can access the latest docs from your installation using

foamInfo function1

or you could generate the latest Doxygen documentation yourself.
