I am trying to add a delimited text layer that has 3 columns: the name of the point, lat and long. In decimals. The interface I have to add this on QGIS is different from what I ve seen. I have to TYPE in what delimiter I'm using, and then click on "parse" for QGIS to delimitate the text file properly. I've tried using different delimiters, commas, tabs, space, etc, but whichever I use QGIS doesn't do it properly, and so it doesn't recognize my 3 different columns, and I can't select lat for the x coordinate; and long for the y coordinates. It proposes the entire header row as the "x field" AND the "y field". Has anybody used this version of QGIS and face this problem? I've tried saving my excel file as text unicode, tab delimited, csv etc, none of them worked.
Here is my entire document:
