MongoImport failed because of empty string

Hello, @Joe_Drumgoole , while in the process of loading my cluster with more data, I get this error

and I think it’s because there’s a document with an empty string for the GoldSteinScale and the fieldFile then returns this error.

I checked the mongoimport documentation and I saw an --ignoreBlanks flag that I added to the script and it is now working, but I don’t think this really solves the problem.

--ignoreblanks seems to do the right thing. What do want it to do?

I wasn’t quite sure if --ignoreBlanks was ignoring the whole document or just maybe skipping the empty field.
I wanted it to do the latter.
