"Column names must be non-empty strings" when attempting email upload

Did you mean: 

I am trying to send data from Looker, emailing it to my airtable email address, and then have it create a table in Airtable.

I’ve been able to do it a few times but my recent attempt gives me this error message:
“Column names must be non-empty strings. Ignore this email and wait for a different one”

I’ve tried to change the layout, etc. but nothing seems to work. What does this mean and how can I fix it?

Hello !
Did you find a solution ?
I have the same problem when emailing my data to Airtable.

thanks a lot in advacance

Yes! In the options, there’s a box checked that says “apply visualization options.”

Uncheck that and it should work!
