I am guessing, you are working on the same format as I am. Maybe I just get
some sleep instead of code. (Anyway I was so far only getting the file to
be treated properly and parsed the metadata before the actual CSV starts.)

 On other imports this has been interpolated and given a calculated depth,
as that field is mandatory on our samples. This is done at least in some
XSLT file.
