Does anyone have experience loading the pre-joined TIGER shape files and ACS 5 year data files by block group into CartoDB?

I have downloaded the data from http://www.census.gov/geo/maps-data/data/tiger-data.html by the 2007-2011 block group data, but the zip file isn't recognized in CartoDB.


The descriptive XLS file bundled with that Census data is likely causing trouble. If you simply repackage the ZIP to contain only the 4 component files (.dbf, .prj, .shp, .shx), it should upload to CartoDB without a problem.
