Error from Companion: Cannot parse text argument to "list from csv row" as CSV-formatted row

I am making a writing prompt generator. It's a series of randomizers pulling prompts from separate lists. I've had it working in the past, but my latest update seems to have broken it. I added several new lists, some of which were nearly a thousand entries long. Here is what I am seeing now:

In the creator I am getting this Error from Companion: Cannot parse text argument to "list from csv row" as CSV-formatted row message, and then in the AI Companion app I am getting a The operation length of list cannot accept the arguments: , [nothing] Note: You will not see another error reported for 5 seconds. message.

I am very confused because the broken lists were all altered duplicates of ones that are still working fine. I thought maybe it was the data in the list, so I tried replacing the data with a working data set from a different list, but I still get the error. Any insights?


Edit: In the image, you will see one working list and two broken lists. Plus the companion blocks for each.

May be due to this( ' ').. Better avoid this and try, may be

I think Spicy_Topics has found the cause - the format of the items in the row must be consistent. I note also that you have a space after the comma separator - that will become a prefix to the item name which is probably not wanted.

Why hard-code your rows in this way? It's tricky to manage them and so easy to make mistakes. Why not instead make a CSV file with the rows and read that in on App Launch, or if they have to be embedded, use Block Lists.
