Compiling Error, Please help!!!!!

Postby matthias » Tue Apr 09, 2019 10:42 pm

Hallo,
this is my first Post hear, so if I'm doing something wrong ... sorry but I'm pretty desperat.

I reacently bought a new laptop and after installling MikTex and TexMaker I tried to compile a tex file which has previously worked on my other computer, but now I'm getting this error:

  1. ! Undefined control sequence.
  2. \pgfkeyssetevalue ...emptoks =\pgfutil@scantokens
  3. \expandafter {\expandafter...
  4. l.369 \pgfkeys{/csv/.is family}


Interestingly enough, the file has only 271 lines.

Sorry for spelling errors or gramma, I'm not a native englisch speaker

Hi Matthias,

welcome to the forum!

No problem if grammar is not perfect... just a tip: in any written conversation, "!!!!!" is considered as loud shouting...

Looks like you are using the cvsimple package for processing comma separated value files. But what else? Perhaps post some code that brings the error and can be tested. No need for the long document, but a reduced copy of the document still bringing the error would be good here.

There was an update to csvsimple 2 days ago. Check if you have the newest version, cvsimple.sty has this line at the beginning:

%% The LaTeX package csvsimple - version 1.21 (2019/04/09)

You can get it from here: http://ctan.math.washington.edu/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/csvsimple/ (not all CTAN mirrors got it already). If you use TeX Live and the TeX Live manager (tlmgr) it can do the update for you, but better wait one day until it's on each CTAN site since some CTAN mirror will be used.

Hi Stefan,

Thank you so much. As a quick fix, I just threw out cvsimple. Now everything works fine.
You just saved my assignment.

Best regards (beste Grüße)
