I get the following error on running COPY - array value must start with "{"
or dimension information CONTEXT: copy tablename, line 1, column field1:
""1"".

the structure of the csv file is: "1","1","BLOEMSMOND SETTLEMENT
AGRICULTURAL HOLDING","00000","","","T618/1943","6.3870 H","NORTHERN
CAPE","","*"

my copy command looks is: COPY tablename FROM myfile DELIMITER ',';
