Multiple attempts to import CSV files result in AtoM 2.x completing the import process, but the related files cannot be found in the database after import. There should be an error message.

For testing we have been using a modified ISAD.csv file.
See attached.

This issue is due to the file now having \r only at the ends of lines in Jessica's file. AtoM expects \n only, while the file sent by the client was both \r\n.

Ideally AtoM would be able to detect which one is being used and be able to accept all three formats.

Client said that import worked if they clicked NOT to index the csv.
If they indexed the csv the import didn't work.
