If you import data to an instance using SSH File Transfer Protocol and the specified paths are relative, the import often fails. The State in the progress bar shows Complete but the completion code displays the following error: com.glide.db.impex.datasource.DataSourceException: java.io.IOException: Problem opening a handle to remote file: Issued_moves.xls

Steps to Reproduce

Use SFTP to transfer files or load data into an instance using relative paths.


Use one of the following workarounds:

  • Use absolute paths.
  • Prepend "./" to the relative path.
  • Use j2ssh.
