Interface error - txt format not recognized

Asteroid

I've built an interface so end-user can input his own txt files:

However below error is returned:

Is the idea that the user can input any file type or a just .txt?

The problem here is that when configuring a .txt there are a series of additional layers that need to be defined by the user, such as the delimiter type.

In comparison such functionality is not needed when working with a .yxdb for instance.
