Opening a Zip File to Add Data


i am trying to import a large csv file that is stored in a WinRAR ZIP archive. in order to load the file i have been unzipping it first, then saving it elsewhere as a csv, then importing it. Is there a way to load it directly from the zip folder?



Hi Philip,

it’s not possible to extract/load a file directly from a zip archive. The way you’re doing it now is the right way to do it.
