Too Many Columns Found in current row

I am getting this error while uploading a text file in a table:

Error at Source for Row number 7370
Too Many Columns Found in the current row;;non-whitespace characters
were found after the last defined column's data.

Then I copied the row 7370 in one file and tried to only upload that. I
didn't get the error, but when I look at the data I see <Long Text>. The
text was 5800 bytes.

It seems that there is something wrong with the format of the data you
are trying to pull into the table. What format is your textfile in?
Does every row look exactly the same, e.g. if you are using CSV format,
ensure you have the same amount of commas in every row. Ensure that
there's no uneccessary white space. Perhaps you can supply us with more
info such as e.g. rows 7360 - 7380 of your file and the structure of
the table you are trying to pull it into.

Hope this helps
